Watford academy coach Kewell eyes A-League job

Harry Kewell admits he could make the plunge into coaching in his native Australia.

The former Leeds United and Liverpool star is currently head coach of Watford's U23 team but suggests a job in the A-League is of interest to him once his apprenticeship in England is finished.

"I would love to do it. It's my home country, so why wouldn't you?" the 38-year-old told the Daily Football Show.

"It's a good league. You've got some some exciting young coaches over there.

"It's always something that you'd be very proud to be associated with.

"It's a very passionate league. It's getting stronger and stronger."

Socceroos legend Kewell, who has played in the A-League with both Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City (Heart), added: "Coaching is still brand new for me but I'm really enjoying it.

"The development squad players are very attentive and listen in to what I have to say."
