LIVERPOOL legend Robbie Fowler believes Martin O’Neill would be a success as England manager.
The former Anfield striker reckons the ex-Celtic boss would be an ideal replacement for Roy Hodgson after the Euro Finals debacle.
Former German gaffer Jurgen Klinsmann, now in charge at the USA international side, is the bookies’ favourite.
Fowler, who won 26 England caps and scored seven goals, admitted he is also a fan of Arsenal gaffer Arsene Wenger, but he stated his nation need a leader with a bit of character and thought the current Republic of Ireland chief fitted the bill.
The 41-year-old was asked if O’Neill would be a good choice. He replied: “He probably would be. I think, in terms of characters, him and Arsene Wenger are chalk and cheese.
“Arsene will sit and is very reserved, but I love managers like Martin O’Neill.
“That’s why, if Arsene Wenger was to get it, then you’d probably need someone with a bit of character to do all this on the touchline, someone showing passion in the way the fans want to see because it can galvanise them, as well.
“Certainly, Martin O’Neill has got that, he will be on the touchline playing the game and, as a player, you want to see that.”
