Robbie Fowler: Pennant Will Be Good For the S-League

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler believes Jermaine Pennant joining Singapore’s professional football league (S-League) will benefit both parties.

In Singapore for a meet and greet session with fans (organised by Courts Singapore), Fowler shared his thoughts on Jermaine Pennant playing for the S.League’s Tampines Rovers.

“He’s (Pennant) kept himself well and is a very good player,” said Fowler of the ex-Liverpool and Arsenal winger. “He will improve the league here.”

When asked if he would have considered playing in the S-League, Fowler, who played in Australia before finally hanging up his boots, said “I was never asked.”

Tampines Rovers’ efforts in securing Pennant’s services have shown that it is possible to get talent into the S-League. Maybe it’s just the matter of asking the right players.
