Fowler wants Northern Ireland job


Robbie Fowler has thrown his name in the hat to become Northern Ireland's next boss.

The former Liverpool hero wants to replace Nigel Worthington, who quit last week following his side's failure to qualify for Euro 2012.

Fowler, 36, is currently working as manager of Muangthong United in Thailand.

But he is keen to return to the UK and take on the international post after taking coaching courses in Ulster during the summer.

Fowler's application was confirmed by his former Cardiff team-mate and good friend Warren Feeney.

Plymouth striker Feeney said: ``I’ve been speaking to Robbie and he is very keen on the Northern Ireland job.

``He’s an ambitious young manager who believes he has the ability to turn around Northern Ireland’s fortunes and he’ll be applying.

``He’s doing well in Thailand but sees the Northern Ireland job as a wonderful opportunity.”
