Harry Kewell is reportedly set to become the new manager of League Two side Oldham Athletic.
Kewell spent over ten years playing in the Premier League. He is best remembered for his Leeds United stint which saw him amass over 180 appearances before he left for Liverpool in 2003.
He would spend the next five seasons at Liverpool before moving to Turkey, finishing his playing career in his native Australia in 2014.

Since then, Kewell has stepped into management. He’s had spells in charge of both Crawley Town and Notts County – he lasted just 14 games in charge of County before being sacked in November 2018.
But now he looks set to return to the EFL and this time with the contested club of Oldham. Through 2019, Oldham had a staggering four names in the hot-seat – Pete Wild on two occasions, Paul Scholes for a brief spell, Laurent Banide and Maamria.
Oldham is a club in free-fall. They need a manager with a scope to lasting more than a handful of games, but this appointment looks like it could be another ill-thought out one.
Kewell as good a player as he was, doesn’t have the best managerial record to date. But a young manager, he could yet prove any doubters wrong, and find his footing in management with the difficult task in hand at Oldham.
