England cricket legend Geoffrey Boycott has urged struggling Manchester United striker Michael Owen to try the ancient Chinese art of feng shui in order to break into Fabio Capello's World Cup squad.

Owen has not scored a Barclays Premier League goal since his dramatic winner in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford in September.

And the out-of-form striker scuffed a chance to draw United level against Leeds in their shock FA Cup defeat on Sunday.

Owen, who has scored 40 goals in 89 appearances for England, had hoped that his summer move to Old Trafford would re-ignite his World Cup chances.

But he is out of favour with manager Capello and his chances ofboarding next summer's flight to South Africa appear increasingly slim.

However Boycott, who used feng shui as he overcame throat cancer in 2002, has told the former Newcastle and Liverpool hitman to try it out.

'Michael is struggling with his scoring and obviously wants to getback in the England team for the World Cup finals in South Africa,'Boycott said.

'So I wrote to him a while back urging him to give it a go. If he is not interested, fine, I've not a problem with that.

'I am only trying to help and if it helps him find his scoring boots again, then great. Everyone has won.

'He hasn't replied yet. But if he does, I will put him in touch with some experts in feng shui and see where that takes him.'

'When I was very ill, I had a Chinese expert come round to my houseand he said do this and do that. We did it and I am here now, stilltalking. I am alive and, at the time, I wasn't sure that would be thecase.

Feng Shui expert Eddie Lui said: 'I really think I could help Michael. I can make him do better.'
