Notts County name Kewell new manager

Notts County have named Harry Kewell as new manager.

The former Leeds and Liverpool winger was in charge of Crawley.

Notts County owner and chairman Alan Hardy said: “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.

“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.

“I'm excited to see how he implements his exciting methods and look forward to him working with our new technical director."
