Liverpool legend Fowler keen on management

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler wants a coaching future in the game once he retires.

Fowler is currently playing in Australia with Perth Glory.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "I would like to get into coaching. When I was younger, I said I would probably pack in when I got to this age. I don't want to stop playing football but I know there will be a day when I have to.

"The next best thing other than playing is being in and around the club, coaching and managing. I have done this ever since I left school when I was 15 or 16 so just to stop suddenly and cut all ties with football and walk away would be an absolute nightmare.

"I see someone like Gazza struggling without the game but then Gazza had friends around him who basically weren't his friends. They were just people who wanted to benefit their own careers by being seen with him."
