Women's Football Redfearn quits as Liverpool head coach

NEIL REDFEARN resigned from his role as head coach of Liverpool today, the Super League club announced.

Former Leeds boss Redfearn, 53, only took over the job in June but the Reds have lost the first two matches of the new season, beaten 5-0 by Arsenal last weekend after losing to newly formed Manchester United in the cup.

Chris Kirkland, the former Liverpool goalkeeper, is to take charge as caretaker boss.

Kirkland joined Liverpool’s backroom team as goalkeeping coach in the summer, and is to be supported in his caretaker role by assistant manager Vicky Jepson.

“The club would like to thank Neil for his work in rebuilding the squad ahead of the 2018-19 season and wish him the best of luck for the future,” a statement from Liverpool read.

“The focus of the coaching staff and players is now on Sunday’s League Cup fixture against Durham Women FC.”
