Robbie Fowler admits he wants to return to Liverpool as manager.

With his own playing days coming to a close, Fowler revealed he is looking to turn to coaching himself and has ambitiously pointed to the top job at Anfield as his dream appointment.

The 35-year-old striker is currently playing in Australia's domestic league where he is contracted for at least one more season with Perth Glory, so any move into coaching is still some way off.

Fowler is also yet to earn his coaching badges and while he admits his dream to manage Liverpool is "a million miles away" should it one day happen it would not be the first time he has made a shock return to a club where he is revered.

"When I do finish playing, the coaching side and the management side is something I would probably go down," he told Perth Glory's official website.

"I would like to go down that route and in an ideal world I would go back to Liverpool.

"I'm a local lad and I've played for the club. I'm not saying for a second that I'm going to be the next manager, but it would be nice.

"I'm not kidding myself, I'm a million miles away from managing Liverpool.

"I'm still playing, maybe in the future I'll do all my badges and go through the lower leagues and become a manager that way.

"As a player you always aspire to be the best and as a manager you probably need to start at the bottom. Once you start on that little ladder then you can aspire to be the best and in terms of management you really can't get higher than Liverpool."
