OFFICIAL - Liverpool 90's legend FOWLER won't be back training Brisbane Roar

29.06.2020 17.22 by Claudio Colla  read 370

As announced by A-League club, 45-year old Englishman Robbie Fowler, a prominent Liverpool hitman in the 90's and early 2000's, won't be back training Brisbane Roar, ahead of next season. Fowler was training The Roar since April 2019, before the Land Down Under league's pandemic-related break.

"Brisbane Roar Football Club (BRFC) wishes to advise that given the current and ongoing coronavirus situation, Head Coach Robbie Fowler and his assistant Tony Grant will not be returning to the Club.

The former English Premier League striker was appointed Brisbane's Hyundai A-League Head Coach in April 2019 and together with Tony Grant played a critically important role in reviving the Club’s fortunes during the 2019/20 campaign before the competition was paused in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fowler will be remembered for his ability to identify and play young Australian talent and help re-establish the Club's strong foundations, while assembling a competitive and talented squad that currently sits in finals contention ahead of next month's Hyundai A-League 2019/20 season resumption.

The Club would like to take this opportunity to thank Robbie and Tony for their contributions, and we wish them and their families well with their future endeavours.

Deputy Chairman, Chris Fong commented: "Robbie has not only provided stability but a refreshing injection of knowledge and insight into the Roar. We are disappointed that the global pandemic has impacted our plans together but completely understand that family comes first during these difficult times."

Fowler commented: “On behalf of myself and Tony, I would like to thank the Club for the opportunity, and the Brisbane Roar FC fans for the warm welcome and support for me and the team. We are very proud of what we achieved.”

Further announcements on the Head Coach position and appointment process will be made at the conclusion of the Hyundai A-League 2019/2020 season."
