Liverpool legend Fowler to be named new coach of Brisbane Roar

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler is to be named new coach of Brisbane Roar.

The Kop idol, 44, has returned to Australia after his time as a player at both North Queensland Fury and Perth Glory between 2009 and 2011 to take over the reins at the A-League club.

Fowler has only previously managed one team - between 2011 and 2012 - when he took charge of Thai side Muangthong United on a player-manager basis.

Now, the 26-cap former England international is set to take over in Brisbane for the start of the 2019-20 season, reports The Sun.

Roar were previously managed by former Portsmouth forward John Aloisi - before he resigned in December after an awful start to the season.
