Aussies hon­our Kewell

Nottingham Post - - SPORT -

NOTTS County boss Harry Kewell says he is “hon­oured” to be in­ducted into Aus­tralian Sport’s Hall of Fame.

Kewell was one of eight in­ductees at a spe­cial din­ner in Mel­bourne on Thurs­day.

The Mag­pies boss could not ac­cept the award him­self, with Aus­tralia’s for­mer World Cup coach Rale Ra­sic ac­cept­ing the hon­our in his ab­sence.

The award recog­nised Kewell’s ca­reer in which he played in two World Cups and won the Cham­pi­ons League and the FA Cup.

The for­mer Leeds and Liver­pool winger said: “It’s fan­tas­tic and a won­der­ful achieve­ment.

“It’s al­ways nice to be given these awards and it’s an hon­our. It means you are do­ing things in your sport that you are get­ting recog­nised for.

“I am very grate­ful for it. I am stoked to be in the Hall of Fame.”
