Robbie Fowler: Liverpool legend to be appointed Brisbane Roar manager

Robbie Fowler is set to take on his first full-time coaching role with the Liverpool legend to be appointed Brisbane Roar manager.

Fowler, known as ‘God’ to the Anfield faithful, has been out of the game since 2012, when he retired as a player and left his role as player-manager of Muangthong United.

He spent a year in the joint role with the Thai club, and is now due to become a full-time coach for the first time as Brisbane Roar have chosen the 44-year-old as their new manager.

The Sydney Morning Herald claim Fowler will be unveiled as the Roar’s boss on Tuesday, ahead of their final match of the A-League season against Adelaide United.

Fowler will begin work at the start of the new season, with Darren Davies, Brisbane’s caretaker manager, overseeing the final game of this campaign.
