Having moved into property after a career in football that earned him the nickname "God" among Liverpool fans, Robbie Fowler has launched a property development academy to inspire and coach aspiring developers.

“I’ve had a very good life and a good career and I have always had good advice and I think there’s a lot of people out there who don’t get it,” said Fowler

“I think I am sort of in a good position because I have had a good career and I think people will [and can] listen to me because I have been there and done it…people will probably respect me that little bit more."

Joining forces with financial education firm Tigrent Learning, the Robbie Fowler Property Academy offers the chance to build a property portfolio without the need for a footballer's salary.

“I don’t think there is anything wrong with helping other people who aren’t as fortunate as you," he said.

The academy has over ten advanced courses covering many areas of property investing and development.
