The former Australia international, who won 58 caps for the Socceroos and featured at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups, previously managed Crawley Town and Notts County.

"Barnet is a fantastic football club but we need to get the club back on the right path and get going back in the right direction," Kewell said in a statement.

"The chairman and myself have put a really exciting backroom team together, with the view of a collective unit being the driving force behind a successful future for the football club."
