While Fowler has a lot to learn before he can be linked with the Liverpool job, there is no doubt that one day he would love to become manager of the club he played 369 times for.

The 40-year-old started working towards his Pro Licence at the beginning of the year, which is the highest coaching qualification available.

And the former striker has revealed that becoming a manager is something he’s always wanted to do.

“I’ve got the other coaching badges and now I’m doing the Pro Licence which is the highest one you can do,” Fowler told the Liverpool Echo.

“I started it in January and it will take around a year. By next June I should have completed it.

“Everyone knows I want to be a manager. It’s what I have always longed for and I am almost there now.

"Doing the Pro License shows how serious I am about it. I love football. I always have done."

Fowler added: “Regardless of what people think about me, I believe I’d make a good manager and I am determined to prove that.

“I am doing it all the correct way. Nobody can think I’m trying to take any shortcuts.

“I am getting all my badges and then I hope an opportunity will come my way. I am doing it the proper way and I’m enjoying it,” he concluded.

Fowler was such a legend at Liverpool that fans often referred to him as ‘God.’

He managed 183 goals for the Reds during his two spells, spanning 11 seasons.

But Fowler isn’t the only Liverpool legend interested in becoming a manager.

Steven Gerrard is currently working towards obtaining his UEFA A coaching licence and is currently the bookies favourite to become the next Liverpool manager when Jurgen Klopp leaves.

The thought of Gerrard and Fowler working together in the Liverpool dugout is enough to excite any Kopite with the two players being heroes in the red half of Merseyside.

But Liverpool fans will be hoping current manager Jurgen Klopp stays a while longer yet. The German manager was appointed in October and will be given plenty of time to build his own squad at Anfield.
