Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler insists he gets along with former manager Gerard Houllier.

The pair are said to have fallen out when Fowler pushed for a move away in 2001.

Fowler told the Daily Mail: "It was not a big 'we'll never talk to each other again' falling out. I wanted to play and he didn't play me all the time. It doesn't mean I dislike Houllier.

"I was desperate to play but the manager can only play X amount of players. Ultimately, if you are not in his 11, then people think you have fallen out. When you are not playing, everyone looks for a bit of drama and ammunition.

"As you become older, you are wiser within football and realise that not everything revolves around you, which was maybe how I felt when I was younger. I am now more switched on, that little bit more clever and I realise that there is more to football than just turning up and playing.

"It is such a big picture. I wish I had known then what I now know today."
