Fergie - Owen can get 15 goals
New Manchester United striker Michael Owen has been set a 15 goals target in his debut season by boss Sir Alex Ferguson. The United manager believes the England striker can achieve this tally if he plays 25 games for the club this season. Owen has already scored twice in three games on the Red Devils' Far East tour and Ferguson is expecting him to find the net regularly this term. The United boss said: "Michael has scored two already and I hope there are plenty more to come. "If you look at his record over the years, even the last two years at Newcastle when they were going through a difficult time, he scored one in every two games. "He is easily capable of reaching that level again. "If he plays 25 games for me this season I think he'll get 15 goals."
