Returning for the event for the second year in running, Fowler, nicknamed "The God" by the Reds faithful, said:“Masters Football Asia always put together a great event, and together with Castlewood they ensure that we are well-looked after. As players, when we are looked after, it makes a great thing and we always want to come back. Of course with Liverpool's support and the Singapore fans, we always want to come back. We travelled around the world and everywhere we go we do get so much support, passion and drive from fans, we are really very thankful for them."

It's always great to be here, great to see everybody and I know it will be a wonderful occasion, particularly on Saturday!” said McManaman.
