If in 1997, when a young Michael Owen was breaking on to the scene with our hated rivals Liverpool, you’d never have believed someone if they told you we’d be overtaking their record 18 titles in a few years. But you’d have sent them off to the doctors if they told you Owen would be scoring for us on the last day of that 19th title winning season!
“As they say, if you can’t beat them, join them,” Owen told MUTV. “I won a lot of trophies with Liverpool but to win the Premier League is the pinnacle of anyone’s career. I’m very proud today. I’ve not played as much as I did last year but we all have to play our part to win the league and it’s been enjoyable, nonetheless. I’m really pleased and proud to have played with a great crop of lads and obviously the manager’s second to none.”
