Harry Kewell eyes Liverpool return

By Matt Farr

Former Liverpool midfielder Harry Kewell wants to return to Anfield as manager.

Kewell, 38, is currently part of the coaching team at fellow Premier League side Watford, where he is manager of the Under-23s side.

Watford’s development side are currently eighth in the Professional Development League, with four wins from 12 games.

The retired Australian, who also played in the top-flight for Leeds, claims becoming the Liverpool boss is his ultimate prize.

He told the Express: “I’m a big dreamer. You might as well go to the top.

“You want to dream big, you dream big. My ultimate goal is Liverpool.”

Kewell spent five years at Anfield between 2003 and 2008, and was part of Rafa Benitez’s Liverpool side that lifted the Champions League trophy in 2005. He also lifted the FA Cup the following year.

Prior to his move to Merseyside, Kewell began his career with Leeds, with whom he spent eight seasons.

In total, he made over 270 appearances in the Premier League, during a 13-year spell.

Current Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is already set to bring former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard back to his beloved club.

Gerrard retired from the professional game in November, after a brief spell with MLS outfit LA Galaxy. Like ex-team mate Kewell, Gerrard also has his sights set on joining Liverpool’s coaching setup – albeit a little further down the ladder.

He is set to join the academy coaching staff.
