Liverpool news – Fowler wants Reds job, Konchesky set for exit, Sterling delight

Fowler wants Reds job.

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has revealed that he would love to return to Anfield in a coaching role, The Liverpool Daily Post reports.

The 36 year old recently left Australian side Perth Glory and returned to England to study his UEFA coaching badges. Fowler would love to move back to the Reds, a club which he began his career at in 1993, and the Liverpool fans would have no objections to the player they nicknamed ‘God’ returning to Anfield.

When asked whether he would coach at Anfield, Fowler said: ‘If I’m being honest, I would love to. Eventually, that is obviously the aim to try and get back there and be a part of that club, because I was there since I was 11 and it’s a big part of my life’.

Fowler made 369 appearances for Liverpool in two separate spells at Anfield and scored 183 goals in those appearances, placing him fifth on Liverpool’s all-time leading goal scorers list.

Konchesky set for exit.

Paul Konchesky could be on his way out of Liverpool with Wolves ready to end the defender’s Anfield nightmare, Sky Sports reports.

Konchesky made a £3.5m switch to Anfield last summer and has endured a miserable time on Merseyside, making just 18 appearances for the Reds. Konchesky was signed by former Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson and was sent out on loan to Nottingham Forest at the end of last season by Kenny Dalglish, where he fared much better.

With Dalglish in the line for a new left-back, rumoured to be Newcastle’s Jose Enrique, Konchesky’s Anfield future looks bleak and Wolves manager Mick McCarthy is prepared to offer the 30 year old a lifeline. McCarthy made an offer in January for the former England international, but stipulations about a player not being allowed to play for three clubs in a single season forced the move to be postponed. Now, the Wolves manager is back in with a reported £1.5m bid and is unwilling to pay any more than that for the left-back.

Sterling delight.

Young Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling has spoken out over his wondergoal in the England under 17s World Cup game against Rwanda, which has made him an internet sensation.

At just 16, Sterling was included in Kenny Dalglish’s Liverpool side for the Europa League away leg against Sparta Prague on the 16th February and is believed to be a star for the future. His star has gotten brighter after a 30 yard wonder strike in England’s friendly in Pachuca, Mexico. Sterling has declared himself delighted with the goal, but is happier that he is back playing football again after an ankle injury which forced him out of the European under 17 Championships last month.

Sterling said: ‘I thought it was a great team performance. The boys played really well. I would like to thank them all for supporting me through a rough patch too. It was good to get the goal today though and I am really pleased that we started the tournament with a win.’
