MICHAEL Owen plays for Manchester United. But they have no use for him, so he’s off. But where to? Says Owen on twitter:

“Not being disrespectful when I say I wouldn’t play in the Championship. Always said I wouldn’t drop down the leagues like some have done.  After playing for Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle, Man Utd and England, I don’t think I would enjoy that football.

“I know I can still bang them in at the top level. I proved that nearly every time I played for Manchester United.”

In 2011-2012, Owen scored three times for Manchester United in his four appearances. Those goals came against:

Leeds United: Two FA Cup goals against the Championship club

Aldershot: One goal in Carling Cup against League Two club

In 2010-2011, Owen scored 5 in 17. He scored against:

Scunthorpe: Two Carling Cup goal against Championship club

Bolton: One Premier League goal against club now playing in the Championship

Southampton: One FA Cup goal over League One club

Blackpool: One Premier League goal over club now playing in the Championship

So. Michael Owen. About enjoying your football and scoring goals. Sure you’re in the right league..?
