The former Liverpool and Leeds player is hanging up the boots

Harry Kewell has decided to bring an end to his footballing career after making 250 Premier League appearances throughout his time with Liverpool and Leeds, as well as nabbing himself a Champions League medal with the Reds in 2005.

Kewell also spent some time in Turkey before returning to Australia, where he is currently plying his trade with Melbourne Heart, and is due to play his final game with them on April 12th. According to the BBC, he might not get to make that last appearance however, as he is currently nursing an injury.

For many, he will (unfairly) be remembered for his terrible luck with injuries, including a strange bout of gout, which later turned out to be septic arthritis, and we have no idea what that even is. He is currently suffering from an abdominal strain, so we do hope that he can recover and get back on the field to bow out in the way that he wants.

However, he was a supremely talented player who always made an impact when he was on the field, which is why the transfer fee to Liverpool was so high in the first place. That's definitely why, no other reason...
