Harry Kewell has been named Australia’s greatest ever player following an extensive voting process.
Fans, fellow players and the media have voted for the former Leeds United, Liverpool, Galatasaray and Melbourne Victory winger as the best player to represent the Australian national team.
The 33-year old, who was also named in Australia’s Best-ever XI, was thrilled to be installed as his country’s top player in the history of the game.
“It’s an incredible honour to be named the Greatest Ever Australian Footballer,” Kewell said.
“I’m humbled by the award and very grateful, especially given that the public have had such a say in the final result and the number of great footballers this country has produced over the years.
“To be named amongst such great players in the Greatest Ever Australian Team, both past and current, is something I will never forget.”
