Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has stated that he is interested in the vacant managerial position at Bristol Rovers.
Darrell Clarke left the League One club in midweek and Fowler’s name had been mooted as possible candidate. Speaking today, Fowler confirmed that he would jump at the chance to replace him.
Having had a brief spell as player-manager at Muangthong United in Thailand between 2011 and 2012 after initially accepting the position following a short spell as caretaker boss following the sacking of Henrique Calisto, Fowler has been linked with a number of English clubs but is yet to find someone willing to take a punt on him.
“I’ve thrown in a few [CVs] over the years but I’m still waiting for a call,” said Fowler.
“Bristol Rovers has obviously come up; would I be interested? Of course I would.
“I went over to Thailand and loved being a manager. People in this country think I’m inexperienced but I’ve done it before.
“I came home, did all my badges, I’m properly, properly qualified, so I think it’s just a case of watch this space.”
Asked if he’d received any job interviews in England, Fowlier replied: “No, none whatsoever. I think it goes down to inexperience.
“What I’ve had back is: ‘You’ve got money, so why do you need to do it?’ I love the game, so it’s not all about that.”
