Robbie Fowler Lands Brisbane Roar Manager Position
Liverpool legend and Sport Careers Agency client Robbie Fowler has been announced as the new head coach of Brisbane Roar.
Fowler, 44, has signed a two-year contract with the Queenslanders, concluding the Hyundai A-League club's four-month hunt to replace John Aloisi, who resigned in December 2018.
"I'm really looking forward to the challenge and am determined to bring success to a club that has such a proud history in the Hyundai A-League," Fowler told the club's website.
"I'm really keen to get started and make a difference.
"My family and I have already experienced living in Queensland, so I'm really happy to be returning and being part of the Brisbane Roar family."
The former England striker, who scored 183 goals in 369 games for Premier League giants Liverpool and also turned out for Leeds United and Manchester City, is no stranger to the Hyundai A-League having played for North Queensland Fury (in 2009/10) and Perth Glory (2010/11).
The 26-cap England international scored 18 goals on Australian soil, nine apiece for North Queensland and Perth.
