Kewell denies forcing Leeds exit for Liverpool move

Former Leeds United star Harry Kewell has opened up on his controversial exit from Elland Road.

Kewell claimed he had 'no choice' in the matter. The Australian left Elland Road in 2003 after 232 appearances and 61 goals, signing for Liverpool for £5 million.

“There is always going to be speculation but I will say the truth." Kewell said in an interview with Optus Sport.

“I had no choice, I didn't have a contract, so I don't know what people were implying or saying. But if a club doesn't offer you a contract then what can you do?

“I have given good service to the club. You didn't pay anything for me. You took a gamble. I have given you some good years, I have enjoyed it. You are not offering me a contract so I will fight for myself. And I had the final say."
