Fowler touted for vacant League One manager position

Robbie Fowler has been in management and coaching for over ten years but has still yet to land a job in his home country.

His last job was with East Bengal in India but the 46-year-old’s tenure came to an end, largely due to his desire to come home following the pandemic.

Lee Johnson was sacked as Sunderland manager following their 6-0 defeat to Bolton Wanderers, despite his side sitting third in the third tier of English football.

A former player for both sides has touted the man known as ‘God’ to become the new manager in the North East and has sent out a tweet in support of his former teammate.

Jason McAteer said: ‘So sad to see my old club @SunderlandAFC in this situation again. knowing @Robbie9Fowler I couldn’t think of a more passionate forward thinking person who would be ideal for the job. #Sunderland’.

Maybe this could be the time he is given a break at a massive club but it does seem unlikely that the owners would take a punt, with the desire to get their club promoted being so big.

Fingers crossed he gets a job soon and it works well for him but this may not be the one.
