PICTURE: A brilliant Owen moment (not the derby!)


As expected, many fans didn’t warm to Michael Owen during his three seasons at Manchester United. Still, thanks to that late winner against City, in one of the best derbies ever, Owen’s name is in our history books.

Yesterday he announced he would be retiring at the end of the season and so it’s probably only fair we mention it.

Whilst the derby winner is the favourite moment for most reds, I’d argue the day he lifted the Premier League trophy in 2011 has to rank pretty highly as well. A former scouse hero winning that record breaking 19th title with United.

“As they say, if you can’t beat them, join them,” he said with a smile at the time. “I won a lot of trophies with Liverpool but to win the Premier League is the pinnacle of anyone’s career. I’m very proud today.”
