Harry Kewell stopped playing football a long time ago, but he has been getting paid handsomely for it for some time now. Since leaving Leeds he has spent more time injured than playing and eventually ended up at Galatasary where he was most recently shown the door. He waited and waited for the offers to come in, but they did not, so now he's whoring around back home in Australia causing a bit of a scene.
See both Melbourne Victory and Syndey Fc are in for him, but When Harry Met Money he fell in love, and so he wants more of it, his agent has thought up a fanciful proposition
"For the record, this is what we have proposed: Harry only gets paid an equivalent of 70 per cent of gate takings for away games if his presence generates more people than that particular club's average.
"So if, for example, Harry is playing for Sydney against Adelaide at Hindmarsh Stadium and the Reds' average home crowd last season was, say, 14,000, and 18,000 turn up to watch him play, he gets 70 per cent of the income generated by the extra 4000.
"If the crowd is less than 14,000 he gets nothing. If the crowd is 14,000 he gets nothing either. If he is injured and misses 10 matches he does not get paid, unlike some marquee players who cost a fortune and were injured for many matches. And if, God forbid, he is injured for the whole season he gets nothing."
Australian sports fans are rightly wronged by the latest twist to the Harry Kewell story, and this sports reporter had clearly enough.
