According to the Yorkshire Post, ex-Liverpool and England striker, Robbie Fowler is favourite for the managerial position at League One outfit Oxford United.

Oxford United have recently sacked their manager Karl Robinson on Sunday after a 3-0 loss to Bristol Rovers leaving the club with just one point from their last eight games.

The ex-Liverpool ace already has ties to Oxford United as his son Jacob joined in August as a scholar.

If he was to be appointed, this would be Fowler’s first managerial stint in the English league structure.

Fowler has previously managed abroad at the likes of Muangthong United, Brisbane Roar and East Bengal.

Despite those appointments, this would be Fowler’s most high-profile role yet.

Robbie Fowler is a Liverpool legend having taken in two spells at the club – scoring 128 goals across that period.

Fowler made his debut under manager Graeme Souness before joining Leeds eight years later.

The striker then made his return to the Liverpool setup in 2006, where his time at the club was a lot shorter.

His return to England, albeit from a different perspective, will be welcomed by fans of Oxford United and also Liverpool.
