SOCCEROO legend Harry Kewell insists he is “falling in love with the game on another level” after his appointment at Crawley Town and says he is excited to get started at the “ambitious” club.
The 38-year-old, who won the FA Cup and the Champions League with Liverpool after starting his career at Leeds, has taken over at the League Two side after leaving Watford last month following a two-year spell coaching their youth teams.
Crawley finished 19th in League Two this season but Kewell, a former Australia international who played at two World Cups, says his passion for coaching has grown since retiring as a player and he is now looking forward to getting started in his first job in management.
“Over the last couple of years throughout my experience at Watford coaching I have enjoyed it and the passion is just growing every day and I feel I’m ready to accept this job and ready to really progress my coaching career,” he told Sky Sports News HQ.

Kewell will be assisted by former Newport County boss Warren Feeney and says he is always willing to listen and learn but has faith in his own decisions.
“Obviously, you should always take advice and always be willing to learn, but I am always a believer in my own decisions and I will stick by that, but I will take advice.
“I have a team behind me that I feel confident with so I am supported but, again, it is going to be down to me and my players when we are on the pitch and that is what will determine me and the club.”
