Carragher has today responded to questions about Owen’s decision to do this.
“He’s doing it for me. He’s a good mate of mine. If the boot was on the other foot, I’d do the same.”
Would you wear a United shirt? Carragher paused and let out a big sigh.
“He’s not going to be there for ten years so I don’t need to worry about that.”
