Jepson, who worked at the club in a variety of roles since 2009, had been in charge of the Reds since October 2018. 

In a statement on the club’s website Jepson said: “It’s with a heavy heart that my time has come to an end with Liverpool Football Club; the place I love and have been lucky enough to call home for over a decade,” said Jepson on the club’s website.

“Over the years I have been fortunate to work across the entire pathway at this club. 

“During this time, I’ve seen so many youth players go on to wear the first-team red shirt, which fills me with immense pride. 

“It’s been a privilege to have contributed to their careers.

“I’m also grateful to have had the opportunity to work alongside the talented people at the LFC Foundation. 

“Seeing the increase of girls’ participation in football has been truly inspiring.

“To the many senior players, both past and present, that I’ve worked with, I thank you. 

“Thank you for empowering me with your relentless efforts, professional attitudes and sacrifices that you make daily as a professional footballer.

“I will be forever grateful for our time together and will be supporting you all from afar this season.”
