Where are they now? Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler

Robbie Fowler is best known for his time with Liverpool, the club where he began his career in 1984, and the club that he played for until 2001.

During that time he scored 120 Premier League goals and made a whopping 326 league appearances – securing an FA Cup, two League Cups, a UEFA Cup and a UEFA Super Cup along the way.

Following his departure from the club in 2001, Fowler would go on to spend a nomadic decade playing for a number of clubs, with tenures at Leeds United and Manchester City and an eventual return to Anfield the most notable of these.

He retired from the game 2012, having lived out the last few years of his career playing in Australia and Thailand.

His final year as a professional saw him begin the process of securing a long-term future in football, via a one-year management spell with Thai side Muangthong United.

A spell coaching at Leeds United was his first major non-playing role, whilst Fowler also spent a short period back at Liverpool coaching in 2011. This position became more permanent in 2013 – with Fowler taking up a position within Liverpool’s developmental system.

In truth, the coaching and management side of his post-game career has yet to really take off; the Englishman is now far more focused on his media duties.

He is a regular feature in charity football events, having played in games including Steven Gerrard’s testimonial as well as Soccer Aid.

The 41-year-old has also set up a number of groups, with both The Fowler Education and Football Academy and The Robbie Fowler Property Academy involving the former striker.

Nowadays, he is a feature on our TV screens as a pundit. He is also a proficient user of Twitter, and can often be seen voicing his opinion son all things football on the site.

Most recently, Fowler appeared on TV show The Jump, where he was eliminated third after a disappointing showing.

Robbie Fowler will forever go down as a Liverpool icon, and his regular appearances on our screens mean that he is unlikely to be forgotten anytime soon.
