Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has been appointed head coach of Australian side Brisbane Roar.
He'll start his new role at the beginning of next season having signed a two-year deal.
Fowler played in the A-League for North Queensland and Perth between 2009 and 2011 and has been working as a coach at Liverpool's academy for the last seven seasons.
"I have worked really hard getting all my badges, so to just quash all the inexperience rumours, I'm experienced in terms of getting all my coaching hours in and this is where I want to be," said Fowler.
"I've been in football a long time. Obviously, this is my first big, big role and one I'm really looking forward to. I'm really excited."
Three-time former champions Brisbane are currently second-bottom of the A League but Fowler is confident that things can be turned around next term.
"It's unfortunate for a club the size of Brisbane to be having a tough time but I'm all for looking for the positives.
"I was a player who was passionate, committed, I had that drive and I want to bring that type of player to Brisbane Roar.
"It's a tough job, it's a tough ask, but I believe I'm the right man to do that, bringing in the right player.
"Brisbane have had some fantastic years in terms of what they've won. The way they played football was really, really good, very easy on the eye, so of course I want to do that and I think a club the size of Brisbane deserve to be back at the top levels of Australian football - and we will be there.
“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."
