Michael Owen for Antonio Nunez

Football News

It's the summer of 2004. After eight successful years with Liverpool, Michael Owen became the latest 'Galactico' after joining Real Madrid.

As part of the deal, the Reds - then under the management of Rafael Benitez, of course - secured the signing of Spanish winger Antonio Nunez on a three-year deal.


This is a tricky one, given that neither player exactly proved a success after moving clubs. However, Real probably got the better of this one.

Despite the fact that Owen only spent a solitary season at the Bernabeu before returning back to the Premier League with Newcastle United, his goal record in Spanish football is not too shabby.

Nunez, however, was a total failure at Anfield, as he struggled with injury and made less than 20 League appearances for the club before heading to Celta Vigo in 2005.
