According to the Daily Express, new Notts County manager Harry Kewell has revealed that he would like to managed Liverpool one day.
The former Red was appointed at Meadow Lane at the end of last month after taking Crawley to mid-table, picking up seven points from their opening five games this season. Last season, he impressed by keeping the West Sussex side up.
Yesterday was his first game for the Magpies where he suffered a disastrous start after being thrashed by 5-1 by Exeter City, as well as that, he got a red card and was sent to the stands. He’ll certainly have a huge challenge if he wants to be a manager at Anfield.

Talking about the future aspirations in management, Kewell said: “Why wouldn’t you want to manage Liverpool?”, he asked: “Liverpool are one of the best clubs in the world. It would be a huge honour. I’m sure I’m going to have a lot of challengers for it.”
“The biggest challenger would probably be Steven (Gerrard). He’d be the first one that they would want to have. But why not set yourself a goal and try and get to that level?”.
“It’s easier to learn down the leagues where you are not in the spotlight and you can put your ideas forward, both good and bad. I never thought I’d say this, but I enjoy coaching and management more than I did playing.”
“You can make more of a difference down here. It’s wrong to say you’ve got the hoof the ball in League Two. Players are willing to learn and there is great satisfaction in seeing your ideas implemented.”
Harry Kewell’s Notts County side face Stevenage at home next Saturday where he’ll be hoping to pick up his first points.
There was a mixed reaction to Kewell’s ambitions from social media users, the Aussie was also trending on Twitter yesterday after his dismal start, check out the best of that reaction on the next page.
