Transfer Shock: Kewell passes medical

Harry KewellHarry Kewell who was shown the Anfield exit door a number of weeks ago has signed for Turkish side Galatasaray for two years after passing a medical.

Kewell was sent off for Leeds United in one the fiery encounters with the Turkish champions a number of years ago.

Kewell was available on a free transfer after Liverpool decided against offering the injury-plagued midfielder a new contract.  Harry who is still only 29 had this to say after joining the Istanbul side.

“They’re a great club. They showed faith from the very start.

“There were other clubs out there but they were persistent and treated me very courteously.

“There are a lot of nice people over here, it’s a great country and I’m looking forward to it.

“There were a few other clubs involved, other English clubs, but Galatasaray showed a lot of faith in me and were very strong from the start and that’s why I signed for them.

“It’s a new chapter for me, I’m looking forward to it. They’ve got a great young squad, I’m looking forward to meeting with the boys and training with them.”

Despite some criticism from Leeds fans after the tragic events between the two clubs Harry said:

“It was a tragic thing what happened but we can’t live in the past,” he continued.

“We’ve got to look to the future and that’s what I’m concentrating on.

“I gave a good nine years to Leeds and left on good terms, there shouldn’t be any bad feeling.”

  1. good on you harry as a proud aussie follower i wish u the very best of luck and the rest of u d***heads that bag harry can get f****d

  2. the one part missing from his statement was …………”even though i had many english teams interested in me,Galatasaray were the only club stupid enough to pay me the money i wanted!…and has for the leeds and liverpool fans,who have lined my pockets for the last 13 years….out of sight,out of mind.I look forward to taking this club for a ride,coming up with more pathetic excusses for my woeful form and getting to know the club doctor,on a first name basis”

  3. at last,he was nothing but a waste of money/ @ i think rafa knew that from the start no body gotthe chances he got ok under o’leary he was bright @played good football but Liverpool r a big step up and he seemed more interested in the lifestyle that went with atop 4 club look at his stats they tell the whole story

  4. So, Harry wants us all to know that he is ecstatic to make off with Liverpool’s dosh
    and start again with taking Gala’s dosh. Well,Harry from one of your x-fans, I say good riddance!
    You never gave your best and took all you could get. Have no loyalty and didn’t want to pay back the faith the fans and Rafa showed you for 4 years. Bet you are excited to get more and give less!
