Al-Qadsiah, a second-tier club based in Saudi Arabia, has terminated their contract with Robbie Fowler as manager. This decision comes just four months after the former Liverpool striker was appointed to the position.
The individual, who is 48 years old and ranks eighth for most goals scored in the Premier League, also holds 26 caps for England. They have been let go while Al-Qadsiah holds second place in the Saudi First Division League, currently behind the leading team, Al-Orobah, by only one point after eight matches.
Al-Qadsiah are unbeaten in the league with six wins and two draws and their only defeat of the season came in the King Cup against Al-Taawoun, who are second in the Saudi Pro League. Fowler’s final game was a 2-0 league win on Wednesday.
In a statement, Al-Qadsiah expressed gratitude for the coach’s hard work and professionalism in the recent period and extended well wishes for their future success in their career.
Fowler has been substituted by Míchel, the ex-manager of Sevilla and Marseille. Míchel, who also played midfield for Real Madrid and Spain, will take over. Before this, Fowler coached Muangthong United in Thailand, Brisbane Roar in Australia, and East Bengal in India.
