Vote: Where should Michael Owen go?
The Athlete, The Ambassador, The Icon, The Job Hunter
Since Michael Owen’s representatives actively attempted to lower his potential future earnings with their 32-page glossy joke, only one club have been brave enough to publicly declare an interest in the Championship striker. Phil Brown today spoke to the Hull Daily Mail:
“We will be speaking to Michael’s representatives within the week.
“I would think he would have a number of offers and we’ll have to be competitive.
“But I wouldn’t sit down with him if I thought I was wasting my time. Anything is possible in football.”
Despite Brown’s interest, Owen isn’t expected to turn out at the KC Stadium: Sky Bet price Phil Brown’s side at 8/1 to capture the 29-year-old, suggesting that he is waiting for a better offer.
Aston Villa are 6/4 favourites to sign him, with Everton 9/4 and Liverpool 5/1. It’s also 5/1 that he stays with Alan Shearer, the manager Owen is so confident will be a success that he is doing everything in his power to escape from.
The former England man’s brochure he wants to make the press “eat their words” next season (something that he didn’t seem too bothered about doing towards the end of the last campaign), but at which club should he dish up the humble pie?
