Perth Glory’s Fowler looking to play on for a few years yet

Perth Glory recruit Robbie Fowler says he will play on for a few years yet before potentially trying his hand at coaching.

Perth Glory recruit Robbie Fowler says he will play on for a few years yet before potentially trying his hand at coaching.

The former Liverpool star revealed he is still feeling great and plans to get about more years out of his 35-year old body.

“I still consider myself young even though I'm not," Fowler said.

"I love the game and I want to play for as long as I can. I want to go down that coaching (path) but let me just go out and play first.

"I think I have got one, two, maybe three years playing.

"(Coaching) is what I want to do in the end ... but I think I have got a few more years before I am up for coaching."

Fowler made the move from North Queensland Fury during the early stages of the A-League’s off season after a tumultuous debut season for the Townsville-based club and although he feels for his old teammates, he is in Perth to do a job for a new club.

"The way the players were treated up there was, well I think it was disgraceful to be honest, but I'm obviously not here to speak about that, I'll save that for another day," Fowler added.

"I'm here now (in Perth) because thankfully the chairman and the manager gave us another chance to play football over here and Perth Glory is the place.

"I am confident at what I can do, and the (Perth) team had a great season last year.

"So I am on board and hopefully I can try and better the team and that is the aim."
