Harry Kewell sacked by National League club Barnet

Harry Kewell's reign as Barnet manager is over. 

The club this morning confirmed that he and his assistant Paul Butler have departed.

Barnet ply their trade in the National League - the fifth tier of English football.

The former Leeds and Liverpool player has endured a torrid time since taking the reins earlier this year.

He took the job after being released by Oldham but has been unable to generate any run of form for The Bees.

They find themselves without a win, and second from bottom with just two points.

A club statement included comments from their Head of Football, Dean Brennan.

'“It was clear how much Harry Kewell wanted to have a positive impact, but ultimately the results and the poor start to the season have dictated our decision.

'“The plan for this season was for Barnet FC to be challenging in the top half of the table and that is still very much our aim.”

'The club will now begin the process of recruiting a replacement and will provide an update once this has been completed.

'Dean Brennan will temporarily assume responsibility for first-team matters whilst the Club looks for a permanent replacement.

'We would like to take this opportunity to thank Harry and Paul for their efforts made during their time at The Hive London and we wish them every success going forwards.'

The Australian native has held a number of roles in the lower leagues since concluding his playing career.

He was in charge at Crawley Town, Notts County and Oldham prior to his appointment to the Barnet hotseat.

Kewell also had a stint coaching at underage level with Watford.

Ironically, one of his first games in charge of Barnet came against a former club in Notts County, who won 5-0 in their clash earlier this season.
