I spoke to Fowler about A-League - Liverpool boss Rodgers
The Reds meet Melbourne Victory at the MCG on July 24 and Rodgers is looking forward to taking on a group of quality players in a league that is continuing to develop.
"I spoke to Robbie Fowler, and I've got friends who've been managers there," Rodgers said.
"The trail of British coaches that end up out there shows it's a league that's professional and improving all the time.
"They've got some technical, gifted players, the quality is at a very high level."
