Watford Are Planning To Bring Harry Kewell Back To The Premier League

Watford are battling with Liverpool to bring Harry Kewell back to the Premier League, according to reports down under.

The Hornets want to appoint the Australian legend as their Under-21 coach, whilst Brendan Rodgers’ side see Kewell as a promising coach who would fit perfectly into their management structure at youth level.

The former Leeds and Liverpool winger, who retired last year after ending his playing career with Melbourne Heart in the A-League, has established a youth academy in his native Australia and is keen to return to England to launch a coaching career, before venturing into management himself.

Kewell spent an injury-ravaged five years at Anfield and was part of their Champions League triumph in 2005, despite being substituted early in the famous final against AC Milan. But Watford are confident they can tempt him with a key role in owner Gino Pozzo’s plans to establish the club in the Premier League.

Kewell is also said to be tempted by living in London, something which he never experienced whilst playing in England.
