Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler is targeting a return to the British Isles by applying for the vacant Northern Ireland manager's job, it has been claimed.

Nigel Worthington left his post after failing to reach Euro 2012 and the search for the former Norwich boss' successor is now on.

Fowler is currently cutting his managerial teeth in Thailand with Muangthong United, but the former Liverpool star is ready to try his hand at international management.

Fowler is said to be keen to move closer to his native Liverpool, with the ambition of one day being in the Anfield hot-seat.

And, according to the Kop icon's former Cardiff teammate - and Northern Ireland international - Warren Feeney, the 36-year-old will apply for the position.

"I've been speaking to Robbie and he is very keen on the Northern Ireland job," said Feeney.

"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."

Fowler, nicknamed 'God' during his time at Anfield, scored 183 times in two stints with the club, having come up through the Liverpool ranks

He also had spells at Leeds, Cardiff, Blackburn, North Queensland Fury and Perth Glory before his move to Thailand.
