The former Liverpool midfielder Harry Kewell has revealed that he has quit Australian club Melbourne Victory, as he looks to plot a remarkable return to English football. Harry Kewell is well-known to English football fans from his time at the Merseyside club. Since leaving Liverpool, he has spent time on loan at various clubs like Galatasaray. He was expected to start of the new season at Melbourne Victory in the best possible manner, but he has shocked the Australian football by announcing that he has decided to quit the Australian club. This comes as a major surprise for the Australian club, who will now have up to $ 1 million to spend on a new player.
The 33-year-old is expected to return to English football, probably for a Championship club. Even though he has not taken the decision in order to change the club, it is a decision taken due to the health condition of his wife, who is currently in the United Kingdom. Harry Kewell has stated that he needs to spend as much time as possible with his wife, which is the reason for him deciding to quit Australian football. He has said that it was a very difficult decision to take.
“It was one of the toughest decisions we’ve had to make. I enjoyed playing for Victory and living in Melbourne, but family comes first and together we made a decision that it was best for us to remain close to our family at this time,” said Harry Kewell after announcing his resignation from the Australian club Melbourne Victory. The destination of Harry Kewell in the English football is currently unknown. Melbourne Victory manager Ange Postecoglou has said that he is disappointed with the decision, but the club will move on and sign new players to get ready for the start of the season.
