Owen Wants His England Place Back!

09 September 2010 10:42
The money-grabbing parasite that is Michael Owen, says he is determined to resume his England career. The former Liverpool player rarely produced anything of note during his four years at St James' Park on a staggering wage of £108,000 per week. Add up his transfer fee and wages over that period and he cost Newcastle £40m! He last appeared for England in March 2008, three months after the Italian took charge. Owen: "I've got 89 caps so far. I played for England for many years, starting when I was 18. "I played basically right the way through until about two years ago, which was my last game. So hopefully I will play for them again one day, you never know. "I've had my fair share (of injuries) but also had plenty of games. When I look back and see the amount of matches I have played at club level, international level, I do not feel harshly treated by too many injuries."
