Born and raised in the mountains of Lebanon in the small village of Kobbieh, Minem was introduced to soccer at a very young and quickly fell in love with the sport.

What does it mean to represent LFC:

"Being part of Liverpool FC is a great achievement for me. LFC is a large club with a deeply rooted history and an array of championships. Many soccer legends had their start at LFC and have represented the club as one of the leading clubs in the world.  Because of its solid foundation, coaching for Liverpool FC will allow me to refine my abilities as a youth developmental coach. As a developmental coach, I will ensure that my players receive a strong basis for soccer that will enrich their understanding, skill, and passion for the sport that will resonate for a lifetime. With their highly regarded youth system, Liverpool FC delivers an effective curriculum while enforcing the team unit and good sportsmanship, thus upholding the philosophy of the club’s anthem, 'You’ll Never Walk Alone.'"
