Liverpool legend Fowler applies for Leeds Utd job

Robbie Fowler has reportedly lodged an application to become Leeds United's new manager.

The Championship club are still on the hunt for a new boss after the recent sacking of Dave Hockaday after just six matches in charge and it is believed that Liverpool great Fowler has thrown his hat into the ring.

39-year old Fowler has coaching experience with Thai club Muangthong United and with Liverpool's academy alongside former teammate Steve McManaman but the Daily Mail suggests he is looking for a full-time head coaching role.

Leeds owner Massimo Cellino is due back in England on Wednesday and will consider all applicants including Fowler, x-West Bromwioch Albion boss Steve Clarke, former Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray and Chris Hughton, formerly of Norwich City.

If Fowler happened to be appointed, it would mark a return to Elland Road for the ex-Manchester City, Cardiff City, Cardiff City, North Queensland Fury, Perth Glory who played for the Whites between 2001 and 2003.
