CRAWLEY Town manager Harry Kewell has played down recent rumours linking him with a move to the vacant role at League One outfit Charlton Athletic.
After masterminding a revival at Crawley following a tough start, the 56-time Socceroo was linked with a move to Charlon after the Sydney Morning Herald reported an Aussie consortium are close to purchasing the club.
But the 39-year-old claims no approach has been made for his services.
“I am an Australian manager in the league and people have decided to put two and two together,” he said.
“I’ve had 24 years in the game and I’ll carry on doing my job. Don’t get me wrong, I’m flattered, but no-one has approached me.”
Under Kewell, the Reds have risen steadily in the table and currently sit 14th, and the boss says he’s in for the long haul and is keen to steer the club to a higher level.
“I’m in it as far as they want me in it. I would love to take the club to a higher level,” he added.
The manager role at Charlton is unoccupied after Karl Robinson left the club to take over at Oxford United – they currently sit eighth in League One.
