Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has had a go at former Anfield teammate Michael Owen after the 29-year-old striker signed for Manchester Utd this summer.
Owen’s contract with relegated Newcastle Utd expired this summer, leaving him a free agent looking for a new club and Utd boss Alex Ferguson stepped up to help him with a bid to re-enter the England squad in time for next years World Cup.
Fowler, who now plays his football with Australian side New Queensland Fury, said he could never have betrayed his Liverpool allegiances.
Reporters down under asked him if he could ever have moved to United. He replied, “No I don’t think so.
“Obviously I want Michael to do well but I don’t want Manchester United to do well.
“It’s a sticky situation and I don’t want to get drawn into things with Michael and Man United. Everyone knows I’m a Liverpool fan.
“But if Michael scores a lot of goals then I hope Fernando Torres scores a lot more.”
