His arrival was emotional, his impact relatively minimal, but Liverpool supporters everywhere will be a bit sad, if unsurprised, to hear that the club have decided not to retain Robbie Fowler,
“We had a good meeting and he understood the situation,” said Benitez.
“I hope Robbie can score a goal in front of The Kop,” added Benitez. “That would be a good way for him to say goodbye to the supporters.
“I want to say thank you to Robbie. He will play on Sunday and it’s good the fans will have a chance to see him at Anfield before he leaves us.
“I know how much he means to the club and the fans so it will be a special day for him on Sunday.”
Fowler himself was equally chipper about the whole situation,
“Firstly I want to play well and win against Charlton to help us finish third, and then there is the preparation for and hopefully playing a part in the Champions League final.
“At least this time I will get a chance to say goodbye properly because I was gutted the way it happened last time.
“I just hope I can finish with a few goals and a Champions League final win. That will be the perfect way to end the season for me.”
