Fowler defends Wenger and reveals he tried to sign him twice

Liverpool cult hero Robbie Folwer has revealed that Arsene Wenger approached Liverpool twice in attempts to sign him and that he would have loved it if it had happened.

Fowler, who was part of the infamous Liverpool gang Spice Boys along with Stan Collymore and Steve Macmanaman, has 183 goals in 369 matches for the Reds. With Wenger’s contract due to run out this year, Folwer reveals some regret about not getting the chance to play under the French manager.

“I’d loved to have played for a Wenger team.” he told Daily Mirror. “He tried to sign me a couple of times. I wasn’t told by Liverpool, I think they kept it quiet from me, but I heard through other channels and had it on good authority he wanted me.

“I think he would have had to come to Liverpool as a manager for me to ever play for him, because I never wanted to leave there. But could I see myself playing for him? Absolutely, because of the type of football he played and his philosophy.”

Wenger has been under pressure from Arsenal fans due to a poor run in form in the Premier League and a thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League. But Fowler believes he’s had it too rough.

He added: “Do I think he should get far more respect for being the visionary who transformed the Premier League, built one English football’s all-time great teams and elevated Arsenal into permanent global powerhouse? Absolutely.

“Look, when you start feeling sorry for the manager, then it’s probably time for him to go. Wenger deserves better, far better. He deserves to go out on a high, rather than the whimper his team’s season is delivering.”
