Video: Michael Owen Outdoes Himself with Ridiculous Comment About Man Utd Winning the League

Michael Owen gets a bit of a hard time for his punditry on BT Sport, but by God he really doesn’t help himself.

The former Liverpool, Man Utd and Real Madrid striker was in the hotseat for United’s Champions League exit to Wolfsburg on Tuesday night, alongside fellow ex-Red Devils Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes.

And as the match in Germany finished 3-2 to the Bundesliga outfit, consigning United to Europa League football after Christmas, a debate broke out over the future of Louis van Gaal and his struggling squad.

But even by Michael Owen’s standards, he managed to outdo himself with his opinions on United’s chances of winning the Premier League.

Even if they win the league, it’s only papering over the cracks?! But…they’ll have won the league. Isn’t that the ultimate goal? Who cares about the ‘cracks’ if they’re the best team in the country?

Aw, we’re away for a lie down. Wake us when Gary Neville’s back.
