Caltex Socceroos legend Harry Kewell has been announced as the new manager of Notts County, the English League Two club confirmed today.
Kewell has developed a reputation as one of the most exciting young coaches in the English Football League and joins the Magpies from Crawley Town after strong debut season in first-team coaching.
He brings with him his assistant manager, Warren Feeney, while a technical director will follow shortly.
Notts County owner and chairman Alan Hardy hailed the arrival of the ex-Liverpool star.
“Having now worked in football for a significant period of time, I have had the opportunity to learn from other clubs what good looks like," he said.
“I have therefore decided to appoint a technical director, who will set the club’s overall footballing philosophy and be on hand to support and mentor the manager as required.
“Harry will, however, be solely responsible for our first-team squad, having the final say on transfers, tactics and team selection.
“He has enjoyed an excellent start to his managerial career and I am hugely impressed with his knowledge and attention to detail.
“I thoroughly enjoyed our discussions about the role and have been left with no doubt that he has a fierce ambition to succeed and a real enthusiasm to work for Notts County.
Kewell’s first game in the dugout will come away at Grimsby Town in the Checkatrade Trophy next Tuesday.
