Former Liverpool and England star Robbie Fowler will visit Vietnam this week where he will have exchange activities with local fans and the media.
The 39-year-old former striker, who earned the nickname "God" from Liverpool fans, will arrive at Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat Airport with the club’s Director of International Business Development Jonathan Kane on a late Tuesday (December 16) flight.
He is expected to meet with local media before joining a training session with children in Ho Chi Minh City the following day.
Fowler is best remembered for his time at Liverpool, where he scored 183 goals in total and became a club legend "due to his ruthlessness in front of goal and his cheeky personality," according to Wikipedia.
He was capped for England 26 times, scoring 7 goals.
Fowler also played for Leeds United, Manchester City, Cardiff City and Australia’s North Queensland Fury and Perth Glory.
In 2011, he joined the Thai Premier League team Muangthong United as a player, but later was appointed player-manager which he remained until his retirement in 2012.
A contemporary of Fowler's, former England captain David Beckham, visited Vietnam last month.
