SYDNEY - Former England striker Robbie
Fowler has decided not to return to Australia's Perth Glory next
season for family reasons, the A-League club said.
The 36-year-old former Liverpool forward scored nine goals
in 28 appearances for the club last term but has decided against
uprooting his family for another season in Western Australia.
"I have a wonderful and loving family to consider and with
the children in school, it's best to keep them settled," he told
the club's website.
"I also need to stay in the UK to complete my coaching
"I thank everyone at Perth Glory and in Western Australia
for making me feel so welcome and I wish (coach) Ian Ferguson
and the players all the best for the coming season."
Known simply as "god" at Liverpool for his prolific scoring
record, Fowler played 26 times for England and also had spells
at Leeds United, Manchester City, Cardiff City, Blackburn Rovers
and A-League club North Queensland Fury.
