Who is Oldham's Manager?

Harry Kewell born on the 22nd of September 1978 in Sydney, Australia. Aged only 15, Kewell travelled to England to have a trial with Leeds United. The trial was a success and because of his father’s heritage, he could afford to take up the offer which satisfied the visa requirements. He then proceeded to play 3 seasons in the Leeds United youth setup and having impressed was rewarded with his senior debut at 17 years old in a 1-0 defeat to Boro. During his time at Leeds, Kewell was sent off in UEFA Cup Semi-Final match against Galatasaray in the year 2000. He predominantly played a left wing position and became one of Leeds most promising youngsters, eventually playing alongside Australian counterpart, Mark Viduka. He was selected the PFA Young Player of the Year award and was in the PFA Team of the Season.

In 2003, Kewell moved to Liverpool, the club he supported, for just £5 million. He played 93 games in which he scored 12 times. During this 5 year stint he won an FA Cup and a Champions League. It would appear that in 2008, Liverpool would not be renewing Kewell’s contract and so therefore secured a deal on a free transfer to Turkish giants, Galatasaray. He suffered multiple injuries at Galatasaray, including a hernia which required surgery. However, this did not affect him massively because he went on to score 22 goals in 63 games. A good return for a winger.

Harry Kewell chose to finish his career the way most footballers decide to, by returning to his home country. Kewell signed a 3 year contract with Melbourne in 2011, a return to Australia which was highly anticipated. However, he did struggle to get going in the A-League. After this spell, Kewell played one season with Al-Gharafa and then returned to Australia to play for Melbourne Heart for one final season, until an ankle injury ended his playing career.

Following Kewell’s retirement, he stayed put in Australia for a few months, working in academies so that he could earn is UEFA A and B licences. He then had a brief spell as Under-21s manager of Watford. 2 years later, Kewell had his 1st shot of senior management as he was appointed manager of League 2 side Crawley Town for the 2017/18 season. He guided them to a safe 14th place finish. This was seen as a fairly successful 1st season in management and so Notts County rushed in to steal Kewell from Crawley Towns hands. Unfortunately for Kewell, this gamble to leave what was a safe job for a bigger team did not pay off as he was sacked just 3 months into the season after 14 games.

On August 1st, 2020, Oldham Athletic took the bold decision to give Kewell the throne over now former manager, Dino Maamria. It will most definitely be a tough job for Kewell as Oldham are not in a good state, but I am sure it’s going to be interesting to see if he can bounce back from his disappointments at Notts County.
