The reserves boss, affectionately known as ‘Critch’, earned the immense respect of Kopites during his time on Merseyside.

Most recently he was indelibly written into Anfield folklore when he managed a youth side as they took The Reds into the fifth round of the FA Cup with a win over Shrewsbury Town.

Critch is one of just a handful of coaches in the world with an UEFA Elite coaching badge. His prowess hasn’t gone unnoticed and as such he’s been appointed as the new Blackpool manager.

Following the announcement, Liverpool fans have been gutted about losing Neil Critchley but they are equally as made up for the man.

James Pearce confessed that he will be sorely missed around the club, the journo is confident that Critch will do wonderful things just up the coast.

One Kopite was incredibly grateful for the work the boss did at Liverpool, admitting you can’t blame him for wanting to take a more prominent role.

Liverpool fans were quick to offer their best wishes to Critchley.

This Blackpool fan seems to be over the moon with the appointment given the new gaffer’s credentials.

The overwhelming sentiment is that whilst he will be a massive loss for the club, we must appreciate what he did for us and wish him the best with his new venture.
