Former England striker Robbie Fowler will not be returning to take charge of Brisbane Roar when the A-League football season restarts next month.

The Liverpool great and his assistant Tony Grant went home to England in March when the season was suspended because of the coronavirus outbreak.

"We are disappointed that the global pandemic has impacted our plans together but completely understand that family comes first during these difficult times," vice-chairman Chris Fong said in a statement.

Fowler had led the club, which had finished second bottom the previous season, to fourth place when matches were suspended with six rounds of the regular season and the championship playoffs remaining.

The A-League will resume behind closed doors on July 16 with the regular season to be wrapped up by the end of August.
