Kewell said: "Barnet is a fantastic football club but we need to get the club back on the right path and get going back in the right direction.

"The chairman and myself have put a really exciting backroom team together, with the view of a collective unit being the driving force behind a successful future for the football club."

Barnet's chairman Tony Kleanthous welcomed Kewell and also new head of football Dean Brennan.

"I am delighted to welcome two extremely talented people to The Hive London to spearhead a new era for the club," he said.

"I have full faith that we have a great set-up that will support the rebuild of the first team and take us forward into a successful 2021-22 campaign."

As a player, Kewell travelled from Australia for a trial at Leeds aged 15. He ended up staying there until 2003, when he joined Liverpool.

At Anfield he would win the FA Cup and the Champions League, before going on to play back in his homeland as well as Turkey and Qatar.
