Liverpool legend Fowler lined up for Malaysian move

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler is again a target for Asian clubs.

The People says Fowler has been lined up to become player-boss of Malaysian club T-Team.

The Liverpool legend, 37, performed a similar role for Thai side Muangthong United last season. He is still revered by the Kop's vast fan base in Malaysia.

T-Team, backed by the eastern state of Terengganu, now plan to hand the ex-England striker a bumper deal if he proves his fitness.

Terengganu chief minister Ahmad Said revealed: "I was told that Fowler is willing to take on the roles of manager, coach and player for T-Team.

"We are negotiating with him as we want to assess his fitness levels. The club wants to make sure he is suited for the role of striker.

"We want to hire him based on his ­current performance, not past glories. However, we hope to attract more fans for T-Team by having such a marquee signing."
