Keith Curle Replaces Harry Kewell as Oldham Athletic Manager.
OLDHAM ATHLETIC have announced Keith Curle as the club’s new Head Coach – until the end of the season.
The 57-year-old mastermind Northampton Town’s promotion from Sky Bet League Two in the last campaign through the play-offs and has vast experience in management across a current 20-year spell.
After a lengthy career at the highest level as a defender, most notably at Bristol City, Manchester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers, he also represented the Three Lions briefly in 1992.
Born in Bristol, Curle had managerial spells at Mansfield and Chester before assisting Neil Warnock at both Crystal Palace and QPR, helping the latter by guiding them to the Premier League as a First Team Coach, ahead of joining Notts County and then Carlisle United.
In October 2018 he became the Cobblers’ boss and won his first promotion in the EFL with Nicky Adams as a part of his successful squad. He parted ways in February but now returns to management to try and help finish the remainder of Oldham’s campaign strongly.
Curle replaces Harry Kewell after the former Champions League winner with Liverpool was sacked on March 7 after just over seven months in charge.
Kewell, who represented Australia at two World Cups, left the club in 16th in League Two after a scoreless draw with Southend on Saturday, March 6.
The Australian was Oldham’s seventh different boss since Abdallah Lemsagam became owner in 2018.
Kewell said on Twitter that he was proud of his players and coaching staff and was left “without any regrets”.
“I honestly felt we were making good progress despite the inconsistency at times,” he added.
“I knew coming into this job that I wouldn’t have a budget to work with and that time wouldn’t be on my side”.
