Matt Beard was appointed Liverpool FC Women manager for the second time in May 2021.
Beard returned to the club almost six years after his first spell – which saw the Reds clinch back-to-back Women’s Super League titles under his leadership in 2013 and 2014 – came to an end.
In the interim, he worked with Boston Breakers in the United States, West Ham United Women and, most recently, Bristol City Women.
“My memories from before are great memories and will always be with me,” said Beard when his appointment was confirmed.
“But it’s about what I do this time and hopefully getting the club back into the Super League. One thing I can promise the football club and the fans is that I’ll work as hard as I can to get us back there.
“I’ve come here to get the team promoted, it’s not going to be easy and it’s probably going to be the toughest Championship season ever.
“But we have a good core group here and the infrastructure is there. It’s about recruiting the right players to improve the team and making sure we have one common goal as a group to achieve what we want to achieve.”
