Liverpool born and bred, Robbie Fowler earned a contract with the reds on his 17th birthday in 1992. He rose to prominence in the 1994-5 season and played in all of Liverpool’s 57 competitive matches.
It’s during this year he racked up a hat-trick in four minutes and 33 seconds, the fastest time to three goals in the premier league (until Southampton’s Sadio Mane managed it in two minutes and 56 seconds during a 2015 game). Unsurprisingly, Liverpool fans were quite happy about this, dubbing the striker ‘God’.
Robbie Fowler was a Liverpool legend through the late nineties. However, a dip in performance and fitness led to his departure in 2001 to Leeds United. He then played for Manchester City before returning to Liverpool briefly again, leaving the club for the last time in 2007 with a total of 183 goals.
After playing for Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers, Robbie Fowler had two seasons playing in the Australian A-League, before moving to Thailand and Muangthong United, a team he later managed for one season.
In 2014, Fowler participated in a charity match to commemorate the lives of the 96 Liverpool fans who died in the Hillsborough Disaster. Fowler scored both goals for his team in a 2-2 draw.
