‘How Can’t You Love It Playing For Manchester United?’

By on November 11, 2011

Michael Owen is hoping for a few more years in top-flight football, drawing inspiration from fellow Manchester United team mate, and club legend Ryan Giggs, who is closing in on his 38th birthday. Owen, who turns 32 this December remains in love with his football – helped greatly by the fact that he plays for United. He said:

“I’m 31, so I’d still like to think I’ve got a few years left in me when you look at players like Giggsy. And while they are playing in their mid to late-Thirties, that is great for us all, really.”

“But I’d like to think I’ve got a few years left in me and I still love the game. How can’t you love it when you are playing for such a top club like Manchester United?”

Owen is currently recovering from a thigh injury which he suffered just 10 minutes into United’s Champions League game against Otelul Galati at Old Trafford last week. It is an unfortunately familiar position that the England striker finds himself in; the treatment room, yet he is as determined as ever to recover and fight for a place in the increasingly younger Manchester United team.

There is no doubting Owen’s effectiveness when on the football field; having played only four games for United this season, he has scored three goals, his latest coming against Aldershot Town in United’s Carling Cup fourth round tie.
