Harry Kewell has been working as Watford Under-21’s coach since the beginning of this season, and he has been getting some help in recent weeks from a former teammate of his - Lee Bowyer.
Pictured with Swedish football agent Michael Kallback, Bowyer and Kewell were together last week at Watford’s London Colney training ground, with Bowyer taking up a coaching role with the Hornets since the start of last month.

He is only helping out as a 'guest of the club' - as confirmed by the Watford Observer - but Bowyer’s arrival has coincided with an upturn in form from Kewell’s men.
The Hornets had failed to win any of their opening eight games under Kewell’s management, but Bowyer has come in to help his former Leeds teammate, and two victories have been picked up.
One of these victories also just happened to be against Bowyer and Kewell’s former side, with Watford defeating their Under-21 opponents Leeds today by a 1-0 scoreline.

If Bowyer continues to have the positive impact he has been whilst a guest of the club, it would be no surprise to see the former England international earn a full time coaching role alongside Kewell with Watford’s Under-21s.
