Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler has left his job as manager of Indian Super League club East Bengal by mutual consent.

The Indian Super League (ISL) club reported on Wednesday that they've parted ways with the former Brisbane Roar boss. Real Madrid Castilla coach Manuel Diaz is set to be his replacement.

The former England forward Fowler was appointed on a two-year contract by East Bengal last October but could only lead the side to a ninth-placed finish in the ISL last season, winning just three of the 20 games.

"SC East Bengal can confirm that the club has agreed with Robbie Fowler to a mutual termination of the head coach's contract," the club said in a statement.

"Alongside his assistant Tony Grant, he took charge of the team in a very challenging period of transition and managed to overcome significant odds to bring the fans some moments of joy in the club's first-ever season in the Indian Super League."

Fowler, who played for North Queensland Fury and Perth Glory in the A-League at the end of his distinguished playing career, left his job as Brisbane manager last year.
