Former Leeds and Liverpool winger Harry Kewell has been appointed as Watford's new Under-21 coach.

The Australian international retired last year after a short spell with Melbourne Heart, now Melbourne City, and embarks on his first major coaching role with the newly-promoted Hornets.

Kewell has established his own youth academy back in Australia, where he also represented Melbourne Victory after leaving Europe following a stint with Galatasaray.
