I used to be a huge Michael Owen fan back in his Liverpool days. So much so that I even considered naming my son Owen if I ever have one. That seems like a distant memory, maybe even a lifetime ago. When Owen disappeared into the ego filled world of Real Madrid, I thought he was lost forever, only to have him re-emerge with Newcastle. Since this return in 2005 the only reports I have seen about him have been doctor’s reports, and now this article surfaces.
From ESPNSoccernt – “Angry Owen denies summer retirement plan”
“It was claimed that the 29-year-old was set to take up a new career as a full-time racehorse trainer, but Owen’s management company have dismissed the suggestion as ‘totally untrue and wrong.'”
I agree that this suggestion is “totally unture and wrong”. It is a racehorse jockey, not a trainer. Get it straight.
