Ex-Leeds, Liverpool winger Harry Kewell named Crawley Town boss
Former Australia, Leeds and Liverpool winger Harry Kewell has been appointed head coach of League Two side Crawley Town.
Kewell was in charge of the Watford under-23 team from June 2015 before leaving Vicarage Road last month.
The 38-year-old is currently working on his UEFA Pro Licence coaching qualification and will be assisted at Crawley by former Northern Ireland striker Warren Feeney.
"During his interview Harry showed us great passion -- that's needed to make this team move onwards,'' Crawley director of football Selim Gaygusuz told the club's official website.
Sydney-born Kewell played in two Champions League finals for Liverpool, winning the trophy in 2005, and also at two World Cups for Australia, for whom he won 56 caps.
He joined Leeds in 1995 and made his first-team debut in the Premier League at the age of 17 the following year.
Kewell was named PFA Young Player of the Year in 2000 and scored 63 goals in 242 appearances for Leeds before joining Liverpool in 2003.
Two years later he became the first Australian to play in the Champions League final when Liverpool beat AC Milan on penalties.
He was an FA Cup winner in 2006 and played in his second Champions League final in 2007 when Liverpool lost to Milan.
Kewell left Liverpool in 2008 for Galatasaray after making over 100 appearances for the club, before finishing his playing career with stints in Qatar and his native Australia.
Kewell will be unveiled by Crawley at a news conference on Friday.
