Michael Owen has spoken with MUTV about his shock at signing for Manchester United. He also acknowledges that he didn’t have the best spell at Newcastle but reckons he can restart his career with us.

“It feels great. I never even had it in my wildest dreams really but then I got the call from the manager to come and meet him,” said Owen. “It was a shock but I’m obviously really happy and things have moved quickly since then. I probably had a poor spell up at Newcastle but prior to that, my career was very good and I’m sure a top club like this can reignite my career. Hopefully I can score a few goals and help the team to more success. It’s early days but when you think about United, you automatically think about winning trophies, the stadium, the massive fanbase.”
