Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler is set to be be officially unveiled as the Roar's new coach, bringing the A-League club's four-month search for a permanent successor to John Aloisi to an overdue end.

Fowler was just one of over 150 candidates who applied for the role with reports suggesting that field included former England boss Sven Goran-Eriksson, outgoing Adelaide United coach Marco Kurz and ex-Welsh worldwide Carl Robinson.

Now 44, the former English global striker played two seasons in the A-League - one for North Queensland Fury, one for Perth Glory.

But Fox Football commentator Simon Hill said while it's exciting for the league to have the marquee name back in Australia, his lack of senior managerial experience could count against him.

"I am really looking forward to the challenge and am determined to bring success to a club that has such a proud history in the Hyundai A-League".

Fowler will be in attendance at Thursday's home clash with Adelaide United and will take the chance to cast his eye over the squad he will be working with.

Fowler, who made his Liverpool debut at the age of 18 in 1993, went on to score 183 goals in 369 games during two successful spells with the club.

"As far as I'm concerned, I'm a good, reliable, safe option and I'm going to do everything needed to do it the right way".

"That will give me time to look at all opportunities to then make a clear decision to continue playing or transition perhaps into coaching", he said today.

"I know our members, supporters, sponsors and fans will be excited for season 2019/20".

He comes into a club that is a far cry from the days of winning three A-League grand finals in 2011, 2012 and 2014.

Interim coach Darren Davies will guide Brisbane in its final match of the season against Adelaide and will remain as an assistant to Fowler who will take over immediately afterwards.
