Michael Owen has told pals via his twitter account he would ‘prefer playing less in a top team than every game in a poor team’ and having scored in Manchester United’s opening match of their US tour he has set his sights on making a bigger contribution next season.

Despite playing only 17 times for United last season, the former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Newcastle striker signed a new deal with United in June to further extend his stay with the Barclays Premier League champions when many suggested his time at Old Trafford was up.


Owen says: “You want the best of every world as a footballer. You want to be playing at the best club – I'm at that – and you want to be training with the best players and under the best manager – I am certainly doing that," he said.

"You want to play at the best stadiums and in big games and obviously it's near to where I live. There are lots of positives. The only slight negative is the amount I played last season.

"The option is there to go to a lesser club and play more often but I'd prefer to play in a top team with all the things that come with it."

"The manager has spoken to me and said I'll be firmly in his plans this season. He expects me to play a lot more."
