Michael Owen got another 90 minutes under his belt for Manchester United and has reflected on the reasons why he signed for us.

After eight years in Liverpool’s first team without winning the league title, Owen says he would love to win the league with United.

“When I was first asked to sign for Manchester United I went to bed thinking about what it would feel like to join a new club and meet new staff and new players,” said Owen. “Playing under Sir Alex was also a big attraction and I thought about how good it would feel to run out every week at Old Trafford and play in front of so many people. But the big thing for me was the chance to win honours. Manchester United is such a great club and I’d love to be part of a league-winning team.”
