Robbie Fowler

Where is Robbie Fowler now?

One of the most natural finishers in Premier League history, Liverpool FC legend Robbie Fowler called time on his distinguished career in 2012 after a three year spell playing abroad in Thailand and Australia.

During his time at Anfield between 1993 and 2001, he scored 120 goals in 236 appearances and was a key member of the side which won the FA Cup, the League Cup twice, the UEFA Cup and the UEFA Super Cup during this period.

He also enjoyed individual success during his time at Liverpool winning the PFA Young Player of the Year Award in 1995 and 1996.

Internationally, he won 26 caps scoring seven goals and was a member of the 1996 and 2000 European Championships and 2002 FIFA World Cup squads.

Since retiring from playing Fowler has been very busy with a number of business interests alongside football coaching.

Whilst still an active player, he invested his money in a number of properties which has given him considerable wealth in retirement and led to the famous chant from the Liverpool fans (to the tune of the Beatles Yellow Submarine) ‘We all live in a Robbie Fowler house’.

He is also a racehorse owner, owns a sports promotion company and owns a football academy called The Fowler Education and Football Academy (Fefa) which is a college for students aged 16-19 who who ‘want an outstanding education, a top class football academy or both‘.

He has also founded his own property academy which aims to give students the education and tools to take control of their financial future through wise investments in the property market.

In 2013 he returned to Liverpool to assist with the coaching of the academy under-18 and under-21 sides with former Liverpool players Rob Jones and Steve McManaman.

He also spent time working as an official club ambassador with duties to include attending matches, working with commercial partners, supporting club-wide initiatives and working as a mentor at the academy.

In February 2017, Fowler was a contestant in the Channel 4 reality show The Jump joining fellow celebrities and ex sportsmen Sir Bradley Wiggins, Jason Robinson, Gareth Thomas and Louis Smith.

Later that year, he completed his UEFA Pro Licence which is for elite level coaches who wish to work in the Premier League and Football League.

In March 2019, Fowler participated in a TV series called ‘Harry’s Heroes’ which saw football manager Harry Redknapp take a number of ex professionals on a journey to lose weight with the end goal of playing a team of ex Germany internationals.

Ironically, England won the game 4-2 which was the same scoreline as the 1966 World Cup Final.

In April 2019 Fowler achieved a post-playing ambition when he was appointed in his current role as manager of Australian A-League side Brisbane Roar.

After completely overhauling the squad, he got them to fourth in the league before the global COVID-10 crisis halted the season and he cut ties with the club in June 2020 after remaining in England where he had been self-isolating.
