Robbie Fowler sacked by Saudi club during unbeaten run and gets swiftly replaced

Robbie Fowler has been dismissed from his role in the Saudi second decision – despite overseeing an unbeaten start.

The Liverpool icon had overseen six wins and two draws from the opening eight league matches to sit a point from top in the race to reach the riches of the Saudi Pro League.

The news has come as a shock with Fowler thriving in his fourth managerial role after previous spells with Muangthong United, Brisbane Roar and East Bengal.

"We thank the coach for what he provided during the contractual period with the team."

Since his appointment on June 29, Al-Qadsiah had won six of their eight Saudi First Division League matches, sitting one point from top spot with 20 points.

"I've not been been given that chance in the UK. You look at my record, and I've done well wherever I've been, despite inheriting teams who were struggling before I arrived.

"This is my fourth head coach job now, and I back myself to succeed in this business."
