Former Leeds star and Liverpool flop Harry Kewell is the latest player to give coaching a go, after the BBC have confirmed he is set to take charge of the U21 squad for a Premier League side.
After retiring from football in his home land of Australia as a Melbourne Heart player, Kewell had been running a successful football academy when he was approached for a role with newly promoted Premier League side Watford.
Although he has never coached at a professional team before, Watford's sporting director Luke Dowling believes his work at his academy in Australia has been enough evidence of his ability to coach youngsters:
He now has a proven track record when it comes to working with and nurturing young footballers.
His knowledge and experience will be of great benefit to the club.
Kewell earned a total of 56 caps for Australia and will be best remembered for his time with Leeds United where he was a vital player in David O'Leary's successful Leeds side at the turn of the millennium.
Perhaps we could see him move into first team club management in the near future.
