Ex-Liverpool star Kewell ‘regrets’ Watford U23 sacking after series of heavy defeats

Date Posted,April 12, 2017

Harry Kewell has defended his contribution whilst in charge of Watford under-23s after being sacked following a poor run of results.

The former Liverpool and Leeds star had only mustered two wins since October – with humiliating losses to Cardiff, 7-1, Ipswich, 8-0, and his last game in charge, a 4-1 loss to Colchester – before being handed his marching orders on Thursday.

The 38-year-old is new to management and despite admitting his disappointment at the club’s decision, Kewell took a positive outlook on his time at Vicarage Road.

“Regretfully myself and Watford under 23s have parted ways,” Kewell said in a statement released on social media. “Unfortunately results haven’t been on my side.

“However I’m extremely proud as three of my players have made their debut for the first team and five others have been in the squad.

“I’d like to thank Watford for the opportunity and wish the club and my players all the best for the future. I’m looking forward to my next challenge.”
