Robbie Fowler Named New Manager Of Australian Side

Robbie Fowler has been named manager of A-League side Brisbane Roar.

The 44-year-old has agreed a two-year contract.

The club is currently second from bottom of the ten-team Australian league with one game of the season remaining.

Welshman Darren Davies has been manager in a caretaker role since John Aloisi resigned in December.

"I'm really looking forward to the challenge and am determined to bring success to a club that has such a proud history in the Hyundai A-League," said the Liverpool legend.

I'm really keen to get started and make a difference.

My family and I have already experienced living in Queensland, so I'm really happy to be returning and being part of the Brisbane Roar family.
