Liverpool have moved to bring back three club legends to Anfield as part of the coaching set-up for the youth teams, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and Rob Jones will be back on board at Liverpool, in a bid to inspire a next generation of talent at the club, after all enjoying great success with the Reds during their playing days.

The trio will work part-time with Liverpool’s Under-21s and Under-18s, and manager Brendan Rodgers believes this move will be highly beneficial from those working their way up through the club’s academy at the moment.

“It’s great to have Robbie, Steve and Rob on board,” Rodgers said.

“I said at the end of last season that I wanted to get more former players involved and over the off-season I spoke to a number of them about a possible role here.

“For me it’s so important to have players like that around. These are players who the young guys look up to.”

Fowler had two spells with Liverpool, and become known as one of the most prolific strikers in the Premier League in his first spell with the club in the 1990s, when he famously scored the fastest-ever Premier League hat-trick in a win over Arsenal at Anfield.

McManaman was also a key part of that side, and went on to enjoy great success abroad as well, winning the Champions League twice with Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Jones was a solid defender in his day, and another key member of the Liverpool team throughout the 90s, and all three will provide a real presence on their return to the club.
