Owen brochure sent to Prem clubs
Published : 14 Jun 2009 10:33:32
Wasserman Media Group has sent the document, which highlights the strengths of the former Liverpool man over a reported 34 pages, to a select group of top-flight clubs, with Aston Villa, Portsmouth, Everton and West Ham among the clubs to have received a copy. Owen has struggled with injury since joining Newcastle from Real Madrid in 2005 and has fallen out of the England frame. The 29-year-old is out of contract this summer and, following Newcastle's relegation from the Premier League, is looking for a transfer to revive his flagging career. Sam Rush, chief operating officer of WMG, told Sunday Mirror Sport: "As one of the world's leading sports agencies, Wasserman regularly utilise comprehensive documentation and audio-visual material to illustrate the benefits of our clients. "Although there has been interest from abroad, Michael has told us that he would prefer to stay in the Premier League. "In the week after the season ended, we prepared a document showing all the information an interested club would require and this was circulated to a select group. "We also included a medical report and answers to frequently asked questions as well as a review of his commercial benefits and international name awareness."
