Owen confident of finding new club

The 89 time England international has stated he is confident of finding a new employer following his release from Manchester United.

The 32 year old had a mixed time during his three years at Old Trafford, and although he enjoyed some success in his first season at the club, scoring 9 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions, over the following two seasons fell down the pecking order after facing competition from the likes of Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck, featuring only intermittently.

UNITED DEFEAT SHENHUA

Manchester United has defeated Shanghai Shenhua by 1-0 in a friendly match. The Japanese midfielder, Shinji Kagawa, scored the only goal in the match. He scored the goal in the 68th minute of the match. Kagawa could have scored a goal in the 61st minute of the match as well, but, Qiu Shenjiong, the goalkeeper of Shenhua, saved his powerful shot. The Shangai players missed a lot of opportunities in the match and looked a bit rusty.

OWEN GETS HIS CHANCE

Manchester United are looking at the prospect of recalling former Liverpool striker Michael Owen to the team after the injury suffered by Danny Welbeck means that United might have only one striker to field on the bench for the match against Swansea.

Danny Welbeck went down after a challenge from Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong. The tackle immediately drew a response from Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who then had a touchline spat with Mancini.

FERGIE BACKS OWEN TO PLAY

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that he expects Michael Owen to play because of the remaining Premier league matches, as Manchester United look to win their 20th Premier league title.

Michael Owen is out of contract at the end of the season, while he has also not been fit for most of the season.

However, he has just resumed full training and is expected to be back in the first-team fold in the next few weeks. Only four matches remain in the Premier league this season and Manchester United hold a five-point advantage going into the season finale.

STURRIDGE AIMS TO EMULATE OWEN

Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge has said that he is looking to emulate the success strikers like Michael Owen and Alan Shearer have had in the past.

Michael Owen and Alan Shearer are regarded to be the two greatest strikers for England in the last 20 years. Daniel Sturridge is regarded to be a future talent at just 22 years of age.

OWEN ON HIS WAY OUT

Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen is expected to be one of the departures from Old Trafford this summer after it has been rumoured that the striker has gone extremely desperate for first-team football.

Michael Owen joined Manchester United from Newcastle United on a free transfer, which raised a lot of eyebrows.

ROONEY JOINS OWEN IN RACING GAME

Wayne Rooney has taken the next Manchester United star after Michael Owen to join the league of race horse owners.

Wayne Rooney has recently spent £ 63,000 on a two-year-old colt.

OWEN BACKS DE GEA

Manchester United striker Michael Owen has come out in support of under fire goalkeeper David De Gea by saying that the press are too quick to dismiss the Spaniard.

David De Gea arrived at Manchester United for around £ 18 million from Atletico Madrid in the summer. Since then, he has become subject to many criticisms for the huge number of goals he has let in mainly due to clangers.

Even though David De Gea has been an extremely good shot stopper, he has struggled when it comes to crosses like every other foreigner playing in England for the first few months.

OWEN DELIGHTED HENRY IS BACK

Manchester United forward Michael Owen is extremely excited at the return of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry to his old stomping ground, and believes that the 34 year old’s return will not only help Arsenal to sustain their run at the top but will also reduce the stress on Robin van Persie.

The 31 year old Owen has been sidelined by an injury that has kept him out of action for almost two months now, but he is eager to renew his rivalry with the Arsenal legend when the two sides meet in the English Premier League.

FANS SHOULD BACK KEAN

Manchester United striker Michael Owen has said that Blackburn Rovers fans should be backing Steve Kean if they are looking to get out of the trouble.

Blackburn find themselves bottom of the table after the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday. It has led to an incredible abuse for their manager Steve Kean and to the owners.

There have been a lot of calls for his sacking, which have been going for a number of months now. However, it has taken a turn for the worse after the latest defeat at the hands of Bolton Wanderers.
