Without a club just over six weeks
before Australia play their next 2014 World Cup qualifier, Harry
Kewell has promised he will be ready to answer his country's
The former Liverpool and Leeds United forward has yet to
receive a solid offer after quitting Melbourne Victory a year
into his contract and targeting a return to England.
"It's very difficult," Kewell told Australia's Daily
Telegraph on Sunday. "I'm twiddling my thumbs. I'm working and
training but don't know what I'm doing.
"I'd love to be playing back in England to get a feel for
that again," added Kewell, who has been linked with clubs such
as Blackburn Rovers, Middlesbrough and Swindon Town.
"It's just a waiting game and it's frustrating," said the
33-year-old former Galatasaray playmaker, known as much for his
litany of injuries than prolific ability.
"That's my biggest problem because no one, especially in
England, has seen me for four years because I've been away. When
I left England I had a bad name because of all my injuries.
"But in the last four years that I have played in
Galatasaray and Melbourne, I've played all the games."
Kewell was recently named Australia's greatest footballer
and he promised he would not turn his back on the green and
"I'm available as long as the manager wants me and as long
as I'm good enough to play for Australia," he said, calling the
decision to relocate "a family thing."
Kewell added: "I've had a great career [and] they always
allowed me to go off and play in Turkey and in Australia and
different parts of the world.
"Now I think it's time for me to let my family settle and
see if I can get a club that fits around that."
Kewell, who moved to England when he was 15 and is married
to an English actress, scored eight goals in his first season in
the A-League and had been expected to sign another deal.
