ROBBIE FOWLER is training with Liverpool Reserves to maintain his fitness levels before returning Down Under.
The Anfield legend, who turns 36 today, is back in the UK following the end of the Australian league season.
Fowler is expected to play for Perth Glory for another year but contacted the Reds to ask about taking part in some sessions with the club's second string squad.
Reserves boss Pep Segura believes his youngsters will benefit greatly for working with Fowler.
“Kenny Dalglish spoke to Frank McParland and told him that Robbie was looking to keep up his fitness after returning from Australia,” Segura said.
“Frank was happy for him to come here and train with our reserve team and he has done very well.
“It is beneficial to Robbie because we can help him stay sharp. He is a professional and his behaviour on the pitch was fantastic. I think he has set a very good example to the younger players.
“Everybody responded well and it was a great moment for them to have the chance to train with a Liverpool legend.
“I tried to explain to the youngsters that they must watch how Robbie conducts himself throughout training. He was very focused and eager to do well.
“His attitude was great and he was the perfect example for our lads. He will train with us again and could be with us for the week that follows.”
Fowler is also building up his coaching experience by helping out at League Two high-flyers Bury.
