Michael Owen released by Manchester United
Manchester United has released forward Michael Owen, who will
try to sign with another Premier league club or return overseas
after three injury-blighted seasons.
”At 32, I definitely owe it to myself to have two or three
years and play a bit more – but for somebody else,” Owen told Sky
The former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Newcastle forward made
just four appearances last season for United and has not played
competitively since November due to a thigh injury. He scored 17
goals in 52 appearances for United.
”Michael is a consummate professional and was an influential
figure in our dressing room,” United manager Alex Ferguson said.
”Unfortunately he had no luck with his injury this season.”
