New Melbourne Victory coach unsure about Kewell future

Ange Postecoglou says he is unsure about the Melbourne Victory future of Harry Kewell.

The former Brisbane Roar boss took the reins at the Victory this week but could not guarantee whether or not the ex-Leeds United, Liverpool and Galatasaray ace would be staying at the A-League club following his debut season.

"Obviously there are contractual issues there and with all those things, I am not going to pre-judge or pre-empt anything," he said.

"Discussions will go on and obviously I'll start getting involved now and if we can come to an arrangement, it would be fantastic."

He added: "I thought Harry was outstanding, particularly in the back half of last season, I can tell you that when Brisbane played them in Brisbane and he scored a couple of goals, I breathed a huge sigh of relief when he got subbed off.

"He's added a lot to the A-League. I think as a competition, I think that's where Melbourne Victory have played a massive role in promoting the whole comp. If everything gets agreed upon, it would be great to have him on board again."
