Owen Injury Woe

Having been given a new contract, last summer, Michael Owen has proven that he still has what it takes when it comes to scoring.

Three goals in two starts, albeit Carling Cup starts, had augured well for the striker who many might consider to be approaching veteran status.

Last night, awarded a start in the Champions League, Owen was to last a mere eleven minutes before succumbing to an injury caused by over-exertion.

Following our 2-0 win, Sir Alex Ferguson had a few words to say about Owen`s plight, remarking to the assembled journalists,

"It was a blow for the lad. He did a thigh muscle. It was really just a complete freak."

Further adding about the prowess he showed in setting up the opening goal of the night,

"It was a fantastic run to get to Phil Jones` cross. He took all the defenders with him and it left a simple tap-in fro Antonio."

"It`s a tragedy, I really feel for him. It`s difficult to say how long it will be. We`ll have to assess him."


The trouble being that with Owen being on a season long deal, can he afford to spend a lengthy period on the sidelines if he is to be considered for a further extension come the summer of 2012!
