Michael Owen has found himself move down in pecking order at United, with Javier Hernandez joining the squad and looking already to be a great buy.

However, he reckons he would rather have less game time and get to be a United player than get to start every week at another club.

“It’s somewhere I feel comfortable,” said Owen. “I know what my role is in the squad and I’m cool about that. I don’t expect to play every game, but I’ve got to be ready when I’m needed. I’d prefer to play half the games in a season here than all the games somewhere else. You want to play with real quality, and that’s what you have here. Quality players, a fantastic stadium and unbelievable facilities.”
