Harry Kewell has been tweeting how happy he is to take over at Notts County and it’s been prompting various responses on social media.
The former Crawley manager was quickly installed as the new manager at Meadow Lane last week, but has said he’s now delighted to be at Meadow Lane. Given the powder-puff display from his new side against Forest Green at the weekend, we’re surprised he’s found a smile.
Kewell was officially appointed as manager on Friday morning, although he didn’t pick the team that lost to Mark Cooper’s FGR. He also brought former Magpie Rob Milsom back to the club. Crawley assistant manager Warren Feeney also comes along with Kewell.
Some people commented that they’re surprised at his progress in management, others have wished County good luck after seeing him have a mediocre spell as manager at Crawley. County fans are, of course, hopeful that the appointment is a step forward after the Kevin Nolan false dawn.
Here’s a selection of the responses from Twitter.
I won’t deny, your progress in management has been a shock. You’ve started modestly and you’re earning your stripes through the leagues. You’re a fine example to aspiring managers in Australia. You should be a benchmark that they’re aiming for, not A League and Asia. Bravo!!
