Will former Anfield star come out of retirement?

Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler has sparked speculation that he may be ready to come out retirement by beginning training with Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

Ex-England forward Fowler has been involved in the media side of the game for the last 12 months or so since returning from the Thailand Premier League where he played for and managed Muangthong United.

Now 38, Fowler has returned to training with Sheffield Wednesday, who are managed by his former Cardiff City boss Dave Jones, and will be passing on the experience gained during almost two decades in the game. But will he make a comeback to aid Wednesday’s fight against relegation?

 “It’s good to have experienced players around the place because their influence can rub off,” Jones told the Sheffield Star. “Robbie has managed and played and I’ve known him a long time – I took him and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink to Cardiff. He hasn’t done anything with the players yet but he’ll be joining in one or two sessions with the strikers.”

Fowler had two spells at Liverpool in his career and also played for Leeds United, Manchester City, Cardiff City, Blackburn Rovers, North Queensland Fury, Perth Glory and Muangthong United.
