Last quote by Michael Owen

Firstly you've just got to give him full credit. At his age, to have a big injury like that, most people would probably think, I've not got that long left anyway, so do I want to go through the sheer agony of rehabilitation.' That is really hard, I've been there and done it with the same injury. So hats off to him because I don't know whether I'd be able to do it at his age.feedback

I've got no reason to think he won't. He was never one to necessarily rely on loads of pace, it's his size and movement and everything else, and as long as his knee is structurally solid and strong enough to carry him then I don't see why his game should be any worse. Obviously he's getting to an age now where he's not going to be around forever, but I really do admire him for getting back from such a bad injury.”.

Michael Owen quotes

Nov 15 2017

We've obviously got a lot of good players, just look at our players coming through as well. We seem to be winning every youth tournament that's been put on at the moment, which is brilliant.feedback

Nov 15 2017

I don't think anyone's ever questioned the capability or the qualities of our teams. Some of our players, going back to my generation, were winning Champions Leagues and all kinds of big trophies.feedback

Nov 15 2017

I don't think this generation has got as many as those types of players. However, I think they've still got players capable of going far in a competition, certainly much further.feedback

Nov 15 2017

As I say, the quality of player would be the least of my worries, it would be the mentality going into a tournament and looking as if we can play as well in a competition as we do in qualification – we seem unbeatable in that.feedback

Nov 08 2017

I think we have been very disappointed in recent years with our Premier League in the Champions League.feedback

Nov 08 2017

Jurgen Klopp is doing a good job, I think he is very popular. The problem with Liverpool at the moment is in defence. I think Jurgen Klopp knows it and he tried to remedy that problem over the summer but couldn't get the one or two targets that he had. But this year, I think this is the strongest set of teams that we have had for a long time. Manchester City are really playing well, a more attacking team, but then we have got Chelsea and Manchester United who are more defensive and solid, Tottenham as well.feedback

Nov 08 2017

And that's unfortunately been the problem, in defence. They have conceded far too many goals and now there is a bit of a gap from the top, from Manchester City to Liverpool.feedback

Nov 08 2017

And then we have got Liverpool, who are a good attacking team. So we have got a variety of different teams, but this year much stronger than last year.feedback

Nov 02 2017

Salah is frightening really, he gets so many chances. His goal return is really impressive, he seems to be one of them players the chances always fall to. He's got great movement.feedback

Oct 26 2017

Getting that massive injury at Leeds has probably changed and shaped my whole career. Since I was 19, I've been compromised. If I did that now, it would be surgically repaired like it's brand new. I wouldn't even know I had an injury. Back then you just let it go.feedback

Oct 26 2017

I basically run on two hamstrings on my right leg and three on the other. I'm losing a third of the power. If I hadn't done that, 90 per cent of the other injuries wouldn't have happened. I would have been the all-time leading scorer for England.feedback

Oct 19 2017

It's been a brilliant start.feedback

Aug 03 2017

Liverpool don't need to sell and the noises out of the club are that they want to reinforce, grow the numbers to compete on all levels. This year they certainly seem to be in buying mode, not selling.feedback

May 28 2017

People don't realise that it's so hard to become what Cristiano has become because if you painted the perfect picture of a football player it's just Ronaldo. He's the perfect height, he's not too tall, a perfect height and shape. He's quick, two-footed, brilliant in the air, durable and he scores goals for fun.feedback

May 28 2017

If you typed all of those attributes into a computer you couldn't come up with a more perfect player than Ronaldo. He's got the lot. And added to that what he's got between his ears as well in terms of the confidence, the arrogance and self-belief to be the best, it's hard to see anyone coming close to him in the future.feedback

May 28 2017

Ronaldo had a couple of out-of-this-world seasons at United at the end and has not stopped improving. He is a one-off, he really is. Ronaldo and Messi have taken football to a new level for so long as well, consistently being top of the tree.feedback

May 02 2017

I am sure Atletico fans wouldn't be happy at all [if Griezmann moved to Real]. He is their idol and he would be moving to the enemy but it is interesting one to see how it pans out. [Karim] Benzema is doing a decent job at Madrid and Griezmann is sought after but I am not sure that big teams will do these deals in the transfer market now. I am not sure whether teams like Atletico are going to entertain selling their best players. Real Madrid may want to sign someone like him or Eden Hazard but it is not easy now.feedback

May 01 2017

I think they will go on and win it again. The semi-finals will be interesting. Monaco are a really free-flowing team. Juventus are strong and experienced. Atletico Madrid have been in two of the last three finals. They are reliable and it is a fascinating competition.feedback

May 01 2017

I just think that Madrid have got more resilient than Barcelona. Maybe less flair but more resilience in the big games. I think they can dig it out when they need to. They dig results out. They are a mixture between the two teams.feedback

May 01 2017

Real Madrid are favourites but it is no forgone conclusion, I'd wouldn't say they were strong favourites. You have got to fancy Real Madrid for the competition now, some of the big boys are out. Barcelona, Bayern Munich in particular. Real Madrid are a real mixture between the two teams. Barcelona have some of the most individual talented players in the world and Bayern have got the greatest depth in their squad in the world.feedback

May 01 2017 - Manchester United

It's not a penalty, but I'm hesitant to say it's a dive as well. It's turned into one and it looks like one but, having been in that situation, you're more protecting yourself than trying to cheat everybody.feedback

May 01 2017 - Manchester United

Unless you've been in the same position, it's very hard to explain. I was at White Hart Lane and I never did that, and I ended up breaking my foot. Paul Robinson, the goalkeeper, broke my foot and that turned into a knee ligament injury and I was out for a year-and-a-half because I didn't protect myself. I planted my foot and then, once you've planted your foot, you're not in control.feedback

Apr 29 2017

I think it all depends on how long his is going to be out. If he is fit from the start of the season, then I would say re-sign him because then he and Rashford could continue as they have been doing. In the long run, it gives Rashford the chance to become Manchester United's centre forward. Yes, it is [tougher than it looks]. You expect at this time of year to have one or two games where the other team has nothing to play for but this is massive for both ends of the table.feedback

Apr 29 2017

It is worrying, upsetting for him. At his age it isn't ideal, if you look at it from his career or financial point of view or anything like that, he has gone from being in the most powerful situation, everybody wanting him. As he is available for free at the end of the season. To all of a sudden that's reversed. Now he might not be wanted as much anymore, let's hope he can get a contract even if he is out for a period next season. It is a strange dynamic and I feel sorry for him right now.feedback

Mar 14 2017

I raced the mother, I've got a few of the brothers at home. She's a family pet and so are all the offspring. I've got four children and they all love the mother. We pat it most days and she's a lovely mare.feedback

Mar 07 2017

We might be getting two strikers again. It is certainly starting to be more three at the back. I just think that the last generation in the last 15 years, we went back to big number 9s who could do everything.feedback

Mar 07 2017

I do think they will come back into fashion eventually. I think that when you go to three at the back, you can get two strikers on the pitch and that might be the next fashionable system.feedback

Mar 07 2017

I was unique in that I was small and lightening fast. Abnormally so for someone of my height. Nowadays you don't get many strikers of my size. [Antoine] Griezmann is one exception but normally the teams all play one big striker. You're not really getting as many small strikers. Jermaine Defoe is one like me but they are a dying breed, the type I was.feedback

Mar 07 2017

We're looking for a mix that is reflective of our entire report. And it's easy to get caught up in the play-by-play of things, especially in politics, so we try to remind ourselves to bring other parts of our collective personality into play.feedback

Feb 05 2017

I think Griezmann is a brilliant player, obviously he is brilliant. What Manchester United must weigh up is, do you spend that £80 million when you have Rashford? All of a sudden, for him, you are not sending a great message to pick someone straight ahead of him. At the moment it is perfect for Rashford, because you know you have got Zlatan ahead of him but you haven't got Zlatan there forever.feedback

Feb 05 2017

Rashford needs Jose to give him the ultimate belief and say 'right you are going to be my man, you are going to be it'. If he doesn't think that just yet then the last thing he needs is for Jose to buy someone who will be there for the long term.feedback

Feb 05 2017

If Zlatan signs a new contract, take his injury out of the equation, all of a sudden it is heaven for Rashford. Perfect for him. He can naturally become the centre-forward over time and then another year, Zlatan will be thinking of retiring. It is a natural progression. You just need someone there who has done what Zlatan has done this year. It is so hard to balance for Jose to install that belief in Rashford.feedback

Feb 05 2017

I am sure Atletico fans wouldn't be happy at all. He is their idol and he would be moving to the enemy but it is interesting one to see how it pans out. Benzema is doing a decent job at Madrid and Griezmann is sought after but I am not sure that big teams will do these deals in the transfer market now.feedback
