Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has applied for the vacant managers job at Leeds United, according to the Express.

The former Reds striker has applied for the role after Leeds sacked former manager David Hockaday after just six games in charge.

Fowler spent two years at Leeds, having signed for the Yorkshire outfit from Liverpool for £12million back in 2001.

The striker – known to Liverpool fans as ‘God’ – hit 14 goals over a season and a half at Elland Road.

A number of names have been linked with the vacant position, including former Manchester United assistant Carlos Queiroz.

But Fowler is very much in the frame, despite the 39-year-old’s lack of managerial experience.

Fowler worked with the likes of Roy Evans, Gerard Houllier, David O’Leary, Kevin Keegan, Glenn Hoddle, Terry Venables, Sven-Goran Eriksson and Rafael Benitez over the course of his playing career.
