Notts County Announce Former Champions League Winner As Their New Manager

Russell Palmer by Russell Palmer / 31 August 2018, 11:18

Harry Kewell will become the ninth manager in the Notts County hotseat in the last three years. The former Liverpool and Leeds forward has ditched Crawley Town to take over at Meadow Lane, with County firmly rooted to the bottom of League Two without a win to their name.

The 39 year old has spent the last season at Crawley where he guided the Sussex side to 14th in League Two and is seen by the Notts County board as the man to get Notts County out of the early trouble they have found themselves in.

The Magpies were amongst the favourites to win League Two at the start of the season and as short as 7/1 in the betting. But a run of four defeats and a draw left Kevin Nolan's side bottom of the table and cost the former Bolton midfielder his job.

The bookies remain pretty confident that Notts County can turn things around this season, still 7/2 shot in places for promotion and as big as 20/1 for relegation.

What can Harry Kewell bring to the table as manager?

"Kewell is one of the most exciting young coaches in the EFL"

Crawley was the Aussie's first delve into management having previously coached the U23's at Watford and he secured a pretty average record at Crawley, 16 wins from 46 games in the league and a win rate of 35% last season. A similar record at County and that would be enough to keep them from going out of the football league, but the owners at Meadow Lane are an ambitious lot and will be expecting a massive improvement from the man they describe as "one of the most exciting young coaches in the EFL".

Notts County's owner and chairman Alan Hardy has also revealed that a vastly experienced technical director will be joining the club very soon as he overhauls the footballing side of the club.

Kewell brings with him assistant manager Warren Feeney, whilst Mark Crossley and academy manager Jon Goodman will take charge of the first team against Forest Green Rovers on Saturday.
