The Socceroos veteran takes the armband after just three months at the club.
Melbourne Heart have unveiled Harry Kewell as their new captain…and the veteran Socceroo is targeting the A-League title in his first season with the club.
Kewell’s bid to relaunch his career back in his home country will come with added responsibility after wearing the Heart armband – staving off competition from Rob Wielaert and midfielder Massimo Murdocca – with head coach John Aloisi clearly looking to utilise the 34-year-old’s vast experience to lead a side containing a wealth of young talent.

In terms of establishing objectives for his first campaign as skipper Kewell has set the bar extraordinarily high, saying that his primary goal is guide Heart to the first every trophy in their history by winning the A-League.
“I know what I want to achieve, and that’s the title. I dream big, I think big, that’s what I want to achieve,” he told Sportal.
“(Coach) John (Aloisi) put a great team together and that’s the kind of attitude I want the players to be thinking about. There’s no point thinking about second. Let’s think about the top and work from there.”
