Announcing the news on social media, the club thanked the former Liverpool striker for his commitment to the team since been appointed in June 2023. However they haven’t given any specific details as to the reason for his departure. So Liverpool legend sacked in Saudi league without any prior reasons.

Wednesday night’s victory over Al-Kholood proved Fowler’s last game in charge. The 48-year-old left the club when they sat second in the table. They were just a point off of Al-Orobah.

Since retiring from professional football in 2012, Fowler has managed in Thailand for Muangthong United, in Australia with Brisbane Roar and at East Bengal in India. Over the course of his managerial career he has taken charge of 66 games, winning 24, drawing 19 and losing 23.

He had hoped to lead Al-Qadsiah to the Saudi Pro League next season. There he would’ve faced former Liverpool team-mate Steven Gerrard in the opposite dugout. He is currently the boss of Al-Ettifaq. Gerrard is struggling at Al-Ettifaq somewhat, though, with his side only seventh in the league.

Though they brought in Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and Moussa Dembele over the summer, sides containing stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Neymar, Sadio Mane and Riyad Mahrez are all performing better right now. Al nassr has been performing exceptionally well in the current season. Moreover, Cristiano Ronaldo is currently the top goalscorer of the year, leading the way ahead of youngsters like Haaland, mbappe and veterans like Messi and Lewandowski.
