Fowler happy taking Brisbane Roar job

Robbie Fowler insists he made the right decision becoming the manager of Brisbane Roar.

The Liverpool legend had only one managerial stint before taking over the A-League club last year.

Roar are fourth on the table and look likely to make the finals, should this season resume.

"I took over a team that was struggling, for a couple of years they've struggled really bad, last year they conceded 71 goals," he told Optus Sport from lockdown in England.

"[I knew this] was a massive gamble for me. I knew I wanted to do it. I knew I wanted to be a coach. I think me going to the other side of the world showed how dedicated I am, how passionate I am, how much I wanted it.

"It was a huge gamble because it could have gone either way but thankfully I took to it. To me it was a gamble that has definitely paid off."
