The 25-year-old has equalled the record held by New Zealand's Wynton Rufer. Kewell's Australian team-mate Mark Viduka, his former Leeds United AFC colleague, was second in the voting. Third place went to New Zealander Ryan Nelsen of American side D.C. United.
Fourth title targeted
"I'm proud to equal Wynton's record and would like to thank the people who voted for me," Kewell said. "
I will also try my best to break it and hope to produce enough good football to keep them voting for me."
Kewell moved to Liverpool last July in a five-year deal reported to be worth €8.5m. He first moved to England in 1995, joining Leeds from the Australian Institute of Sport.
