Liverpool legend Fowler to join coaching staff at MK Dons

Robbie Fowler will rejoin his old friend - and MK Dons manager - Karl Robinson at the club.

Robbie Fowler will rejoin his old friend - and MK Dons manager - Karl Robinson at the club.

Fowler worked with Robinson during his time with the Liverpool Academy and also at Blackburn Rovers.

While assistant manager at stadium:mk, Robinson then invited the 35 year old to the club in April to meet the squad and work with the Dons' strikers.

Fowler has now agreed to return on a more permanent basis when he has finished his current playing stint with Australian side Perth Glory, for whom he netted a hat-trick in last week's 3-1 win over Melbourne Victory.

Welcoming the new arrangement, Robinson said: "When his season finishes he'll be over on a regular basis working with the forwards as part of my coaching team."

Fowler's friend Dietmar Hamann is already a player-coach at stadium:mk.
