North Queensland Fury owner Don Matheson has insisted Robbie Fowler will not be leaving the club.
The former Liverpool striker has reportedly fallen out with Fury manager Ian Ferguson and is rumoured to be looking to leave the A-League outfit.
But Matheson insists that Fowler, who only signed for Fury in January, will honour his two-year contract and remain in Australia.
"He's leaving over my dead body and I own and run the club, so that's where that all finishes," he told The World Game.
"Robbie's an outstanding lad and a great footballer, probably the best thing that has happened to the A-League to date.
"I'm sure the coach has his expectations and they'll work through that. If I thought there was an issue I'd deal with it in a flash."
