Coming straight out of the wide blue yonder, Crawley Town have appointed Harry Kewell as their new head coach.

The League Two side made their big announcement via a statement issued on their official website at around midday.

Kewell be aided by Warren Feeney, who is taking up the role as assistant coach.

The former Liverpool and Leeds midfielder, now 38, is currently working towards his UEFA Pro License having most recently spent a year or so in charge of Waftord’s Under-23 side.

Crawley director of football Selim Gaygusuz told the club site:

During his interview Harry showed us great passion, and that’s needed to make this team move onwards.

Having finished 19th in League Two last season, surely bringing in a head coach who is completely devoid of senior experience represents a fairly significant risk?

    It’s an even bigger risk given his Watford Under 23 team won about 5% of their matches.

    And yet Zidane with similar experience levels has taken Real Madrid to a whole new level. Not quite Crawley Town but when you are commenting on prior experience… best wishes Harry hope you do well.
