Michael Owen has explained what stood out to him the most upon joining Manchester United, after playing for Liverpool, Real Madrid and Newcastle.

“One of the things that struck me when I arrived at United was the desire to win,” he said. “Giggs, Scholes, Neville, and the manager, all expect to win. They are driven by winning and if they don’t win they feel this extra amount of motivation and that’s what they will be like next season.”
