United - Owen on His Future!

United - Owen on His Future!

As you get older and the years tend to catch up with you, part of ensuring you remain at the top of your game is making sure that you adapt certain aspects of it.

As a youngster Michael Owen was renowned for his lightning pace and exquisite finishing, his specialty was playing on the shoulders of the last defender and then using that blistering pace to leave the for dead. Who`ll ever forget the delightful goal a young Michael Owen scored for England against Argentina?

But injuries have taken the edge of that pace and Michael is now approaching the twilight years of his career. Fit again after tearing a muscle on that heavily criticized pitch at Wembley, Michael is looking forward to the new season and at how the future might pan out for him.

However, one thing is certain, Michael might have grown up as a Liverpool layer but he wants nothing better than to finish his career in the red of Manchester United when he remarks,

"I`m 30 now and understand I won`t play every game."

"I`ve had a lot of injuries and don`t have the pace I once had but life evolves."

"I`ve changed my style, I`m a different type of player now, and because of that, I reckon I`ve still got four or five years at the top.

"And I much prefer that to be at United, where I train every day with some of the world`s top players. Where I work every day with arguably the best manager who`s ever lived."

"Where I play in front of such great fans and in a amazing stadium such as Old Trafford."

"And I`m really happy now I live back at home after being away for five years."

"I prefer all those things ahead of playing every game for a team that only ever going to be 12th in the league."

"Now that`s when I would struggle to find motivation."

"So I`d rather play half the games but be at United with this great manager, these great players, at this great stadium and in front of so many fanatical fans."


Half the games may not sound a lot until you realise a successful season, on all fronts, could see Manchester United play something akin to 65 games this season!

Good attitude but i can't see him being here for 5 or 6 years, another 2 at best in my opinion. But i do love his attitude, never though i would here and ex-liverpool player saying it.
