Player profile

Michael Owen is a striker, who had three seasons at Manchester United between 2009 and 2012.

Owen was born in Chester in 1979 and grew up in Hawarden. He joined Liverpool at sixteen, played for them for seven seasons and was regularly their season's top scorer. In 2004 he moved to Real Madrid, but remained there for just one season. In 2005 he returned to English football, signing a four-year contract with Newcastle United. His time at Newcastle was disappointing. He missed a number of games through injury and, in his final season, the club was relegated. Having come to the end of his contract, Owen was a free agent. He signed a two-year deal with Manchester United, that was subsequently extended by a further year. He made eleven starts in his first season, but just four in his second and three in his third. He was released by the Club at the end of the 2011-2012 season and joined Stoke City for 2012-2013.

For all his clubs, Owen scored goals. He is a natural finisher, sharp in the penalty area and quick over the ground. Sadly, he has suffered numerous injuries during his career (including hamstring, metatarsal and cruciate ligament injuries) and inevitably these have taken their toll. He scored seventeen goals for Manchester United and will probably be best remembered for an injury-time winner against Manchester City in September 2009.

Owen played eighty-nine times for England and scored forty goals.
