Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler wished his former team-mate Michael Owen the best of luck at his new club but ridiculed suggestions he would have ever joined the Mancs.
The 34 year old who is 5th in Liverpool’s all-time goalscoring chart, is due to start his new career at Queensland Fury tomorrow, but was asked if he would have ever considered joining United.
“No, I don’t think so.”
Was the response.
“Obviously I want Michael to do well but I don’t want Manchester United to do well.
“It’s a sticky situation and I don’t want to get drawn into things with Michael and Man United. Everyone knows I’m a Liverpool fan.
“But if Michael scores a lot of goals then I hope Fernando Torres scores a lot more.”
“I don’t want to go down that route (being critical of Owen’s decision) as I leave myself open to criticism but Michael has done what he’s done and it’s not for me to judge what he should do or shouldn’t do. He’s a big lad.
“His record over the years has been fantastic. Again, I hope he scores a few goals but I hope they concede more.”
Well in Robbie lad. And good luck down with the ‘Fury!
