Ronaldo: Owen will be a hit

17 Jul 2009 - 08:19:17

Cristiano Ronaldo believes Michael Owen is a fitting successor to him in the famous number seven shirt of Manchester United.

Owen completed a surprise free transfer switch to Old Trafford from Newcastle United earlier in the month.

The striker is looking to resurrect a career which has stalled during four injury-plagued years with the Magpies and will wear the shirt vacated by Ronaldo following his £80million switch to Real Madrid.

The likes of George Best, Bryan Robson, David Beckham and Eric Cantona have all previously worn the number seven at Old Trafford and Ronaldo believes the striker is the ideal choice to carry on the tradition.

"Michael Owen is an experienced player. He has played at the biggest clubs," he said.

"He has everything to win at United. He is at a fantastic club and he is a great player.

"It was a good decision to give him the number seven.

"You don't have a lot of pressure just because you have the number seven. It was a good decision by United."
