Australia forward Harry
Kewell has quit Melbourne Victory after just a year at the
A-League club after deciding to return to England for family
The 33-year-old former Leeds United, Liverpool and
Galatasaray playmaker scored eight goals in his first season in
his home domestic league and had been expected to sign another
"It was one of the toughest decisions we've had to make,"
Kewell said from England in a Football Federation Australia
(FFA) news release.
"I enjoyed playing for Victory and living in Melbourne, but
family comes first and together we made a decision that it was
best for us to remain close to our family at this time."
Kewell, who left Australia for England when he was 15 and is
married to an English actress, was Australia's first genuine
world class soccer talent and his signing was a huge boost for
