Michael Owen’s Comments on Karim Benzema Have Liverpool Fans Fuming

Michael Owen’s Comments on Karim Benzema Have Liverpool Fans Fuming

Michael Owen has once again managed to completely infuriate pretty much the entire Liverpool fanbase by making a rather silly comment about his time at Manchester United.

Owen was once the darling of the Anfield crowd after breaking into the Liverpool first-team as a jet-heeled teenager in the late 90s, and even managed to win the Ballon d’Or whilst wearing the club’s iconic shirt.

However, after he left in 2004, his legacy was soon obliterated, particularly when he decided to sign on a free transfer for bitter rivals Manchester United in 2009.

Owen has referred to that move as more of a business decision previously, but comments earlier this week sounds a lot more giddy about his spell at Old Trafford.

Apparently, Sir Alex Ferguson only turned to Owen after failing to sign Karim Benzema, and speaking via Canal+, Owen explained: “I thank Benzema because without him I would never have gone to Manchester United.

“Ferguson told me that I will only sign if he couldn’t get Benzema. And that’s what happened.”

And you can probably imagine the fallout:

Silly Michael.

What do you think of his comments? And should all of these supporters really be this angry?
