He has broken his silence.

Robbie Fowler has finally broken his silence after being dismissed as Al Qadsiah manager despite an unbeaten start to the season.

In October, Saudi Arabian second-tier side Al-Qadsiah sacked Fowler as their manager, just four months after appointing the former Liverpool star.

Fowler, among the Premier League’s most lethal ever strikers, was dismissed with Al-Qadsiah second in the Saudi First Division League, trailing the leaders, Al-Orobah, by one point after eight matches.

Moreover, Al-Qadsiah were unbeaten in the league with six wins and two draws while their only defeat of the campaign came in the King Cup against Saudi Pro League side Al-Taawoun.

Fowler, a 26-cap England international, was replaced by the former Sevilla and Marseille boss Míchel, who played as a midfielder for Real Madrid and Spain.

While it appeared a strange decision at the time, the club now sit top of the table by four points.

Speaking to The National News, Fowler claimed he told the club they were "making the wrong decision" in sacking him and added that he believed the team could have gone the season unbeaten.

The Liverpool legend explained: "They just wanted to go down a different pathway.

“They have a Spanish sporting director so I think the Spanish model sort of fits into what he wanted to do, and unfortunately I didn't fit into that.

"I was very, very disappointed because my record was unbelievable. But it was excellent there.

“We were enjoying the football, we were second, just a point behind the leaders.

“It's not nice when you lose your job when you're on the back of an unbelievable run with a team who really, really have shown a clear identity.

“It sounds a little bit far-fetched, but I believe that we would have gone the full season undefeated because I was confident in what we could do."

Fowler previously managed the Thai club Muangthong United, Australia’s Brisbane Roar and Indian side East Bengal.
