Pep Segura, Liverpool’s youth academy’s Technical Manager has quit his position at the club, citing that he wants to spend more time with his family in Spain.
However, the Liverpool Echo today report that Segura was frustrated with the club’s decision not to promote him when the managerial overhaul happened this summer.
Following the sacking of Kenny Dalglish and departure of coach Steve Clarke from first team duties, Segura had looked set to be promoted to work alongside new boss Brendan Rodgers.
However, part of Rodgers’ terms to become the new boss at Liverpool was that he would retain control over all matters football at Anfield – and Segura wasn’t offered a promotion.
The Echo report,
The search for his successor will begin shortly but in the short term Segura’s sudden departure shouldn’t have any great impact as the Academy will continue to follow the programme he put in place.
Segura had been at Liverpool since 2009 and has worked at clubs including Barcelona and Olympiakos.
