McManaman: Evans in charge, Fowler and Ronaldo up top

16 February 2011

Liverpool legend Steve McManaman has named his ultimate dream team in the latest issue of FourFourTwo magazine picking Roy Evans as his manager and pairing Ronaldo and Robbie Fowler up-front.

McManaman spent 9 years at Liverpool between 1990 and 1999 before joinging Real Madrid where the former English international won two La Liga titles, one UEFA Champions League, and a UEFA Super Cup.

The 39-year-old  was managed by Roy Evans during his time at Anfield and McManaman believes the Anfield legend was underrated. He said:

“Very underrated. If he was at Anfield now they’d be in the Champions League every year.”

The former City winger also revealed that former teammate Robbie Fowler was one of the greatest strikers in the history of the game.

“The greatest goalscorer of all time, ‘Growler’ was fantastic at putting the ball in the net. Like others here, he’s had his knocks along the way, which stopped him becoming even better.”
