Notts County owner Alan Hardy says he had concerns over Harry Kewell as a manager only two weeks after hiring him.
Hardy sacked Kewell after just 14 games in charge.
The Notts chairman said he has no regrets about his decision to bin the former Socceroo.
“I flagged it up at a board meeting two weeks after his appointment that I had concerns,” he told Nottinghamshire Live.
“The board were very supportive. I ran through all the reasons why I appointed him and we went back through all of those reasons.
"We extolled the qualities but ultimately there were a lot of negatives that I tried to fix over a period of time. Eventually I gave in and a decision had to be made. I don’t regret having to part company with Harry.
"I got the Harry appointment wrong."
