Since his move to Old Trafford Michael Owen has had his detractors.

The former Liverpool striker has made it perfectly clear that he would rather be at United, face limited playing time but attempt to force his way into the team, than be at a lesser club and play more games.

This has caused much contention amongst fans as well as other professionals but in his time at Old Trafford, Owen has reaped the rewards, with him finally lifting a league title having failed to do so with Liverpool, Real Madrid and Newcastle previously.

Following his two goal salvo against Leeds in the Carling Cup last month there was further talk of a return to the international set up for the 31 year old striker but former international and club strike partner Alan Shearer has spoken out against Owen claiming he wouldn’t be happy to be in that position,

“He’s happy with that. That’s his decision.

“Other players might have been different. I wouldn’t have been happy sat on the bench.

“I would want to play. But that’s him.”

    Oh so Shearer is sticking the boot into Owen again. Surprise surprise for the record duncehead Shearer Owen has never said he is happy to be sat on the bench. Anyway who is he to talk he was happy to be winning nothing at Newcastle. I see why Roy Keane couldn’t stand big mouth Shearer. The problem with Shearer is he was always very jealous of Owen and clearly still is. Grow up and get a life.

      Quite a disgusting thing to say don’t you think? The Munich air disaster didn’t only affect United but Manchester as a city but England as a national team and a country.

      You have allowed a disliking of Owen to reveal yourself as a scumbag, congrats sir!

    Magpie till I die – harsh words to Denise but your wrong, loyalty never made him turn down United… Blackburns money did, you mug. He then went to you lot and won nowt, then claims loyalty!

    Good player but on par with le tissier both had big fish syndrome
