Galatasaray star Harry Kewell is returning home for treatment on his troublesome groin. The Socceroo will come home to Sydney with the blessing of his Turkish club to see a specialist about the hernia problem in his groin.

"Harry Kewell is examined because of the pain in his right inguinal region, and considering the fact that the inguinal hernia might have recurred where he had a surgery before, he is allowed to go to Australia to be checked by the doctors who made the surgery and treated him," said the club's official website.

"The treatment method will be decided in co-ordination with our medical staff after the diagnosis is made."
