What does it mean to represent Liverpool FC:
"Having the opportunity to represent a club like Liverpool Football Club is life changing. Liverpool FC is one of the most recognized clubs, and brands in the world of soccer. The professionalism of our coaching staff, leadership, and the vision for our program is the biggest draw for me. Being able to help mold youth soccer players under "The Liverpool Way" will help them reach their soccer goals, but also help them mature as individuals. For me as a coach this is a dream come true."
