Manchester United favourite Michael Owen is aiming to prove his critics wrong, and win a medal for United as they push for the title in their last five league games of the season.

“Being successful and winning things was the main draw in signing for Manchester United," Owen said.

“I have been at big clubs throughout my career, challenging for honours but have never been in as good a position at this stage of the season as we are now.”


Owen has become a fan favourite for Manchester United after scoring in the 4-3 derby win over Manchester City last season. The striker is unsure of what his future holds with his contract ending this summer, but says his time at Manchester United has been unforgettable.

“I have enjoyed my time at United immensely,” the striker said.

“Unfortunately, I haven’t played as many games as I would have liked but being around such good players and coaches helps you enjoy it even more.”

Owen was involved in controversy this week as Manchester United took on Newcastle on Tuesday night. The St James’ Park crowd were particularly scathing of Owen as he ran on the pitch, prompting some angry twitters from the striker, aimed at the northern fans.

But with only two more appearances needed for Owen to qualify for a medal should Manchester United win the title, the 31 year old will be looking to silence his critics and take home another football accolade.
