Posted by

The former Australian playmaker Harry Kewell, was speaking to Ladbrokes and the current Oldham Athletic A.F.C. manager outlined  why he choose Liverpool over Arsenal and other clubs that made offers for him when he was leaving Arsenal football club.

“I have great, great memories of my time at Leeds United but the opportunity came for me to move on and there were about seven or eight clubs that were seriously interested in me at the time,” Kewell said.

“But when I spoke with Gerard Houllier, the way he spoke about football was just phenomenal. His vision completely sold it for me.

“Don’t get me wrong, I had interviews with AC Milan and Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, these are clubs and managers that are very respectable and they put their pitches forward as well, but speaking to Houllier just got me over the line. He told me what he wanted to do with his Liverpool squad and I knew I had to be a part of it.

“I don’t have any regrets at all about choosing Liverpool over Arsenal. Yes they went on to complete that unbelievable invincible season and it was truly phenomenal what they achieved and I always had a lot of respect for Arsene Wenger and his interest in me.
