‘Gis A Job, Tony’ – Harry Kewell Turns Up At Stoke Unannounced, Looking For Work

Harry injured. Again.

Once a veritable bright young thing of the Premier League, former Leeds United star Harry Kewell has seen his career not quite live up to its initial potential. Now, after leaving Aussie side the Melbourne Victory, the 33-year-old Socceroo is looking for a new club, with Stoke City on his list of potential employers.

Indeed, according to the Herald Sun, the star turned up at the Potters’ training ground for a meeting with Tony Pulis, something which was apparently news to the club itself.  A spokesperson  said:

“He turned up out of the blue, wasn’t expected by anyone, had a five minute conversation with our manager and left”.

Apparently Kewell is back in Blighty to be with his wife, Sheree Murphy, as her mum is ill. So it doesn’t look like he flew all the way back just to pop in to see Mr. Pulis. Still, it all seems quite desperate. And would any top tier club really be willing to take a punt on the veteran attacker?

    Misdiagnoses and poor treatment at Liverpool cost Kewell dearly (though to be fair, he has a rare inflammatory condition that is difficult to identify). I hope that he gets one last chance to shine in the EPL — all the best to him.

    How do you like your egg Harry? I would have thought he had a manager to take care of all this negotiation stuff for him…or is he so greedy that he wants to cut the middle man out. Harry, you’re old, fragile & washed up – time to move on. Unfortunately you don’t yet qualify for the Sunday social over 35’s league either.

    I just laughed for a full five minutes at this.

  4. Andy says:

    He’s nowhere near good enough for the prem, and he doesn’t deserve to be there. I hope he joins a side in the championship so that he’ll come up against Leeds, then he’ll get what he deserves. He is absolute scum

  5. Col says:

    “Absolute scum” seems a tad harsh…
