Michael Owen Tears Into Newcastle United About Being A Big Club

Michael Owen Tears Into Newcastle United About Being A Big Club”

These quotes got on the nerves of one Alan Shearer, Newcastle legend and Owen's former worldwide teammate. "I didn't want to go there - my heart was set on a return to Liverpool but they couldn't match the offer made to Real Madrid".

The money grabbing non-playing mercenary has his new book out this week and it is being serialised ahead of its publication on Thursday. He says he relationship with Newcastle fans was ruptured beyond fix when he was knocked unconscious against Watford in a game and the fans started chanting "What a waste of money" as he was carted off the field.

Owen was quick to clap back at the Match of the Day pundit.

'In his time with me, it wasn't about him not wanting to play, it was more about the fact it was very hard to keep him fit and get him on the field.

"He was brought in at St. James' Park as the saviour, the local boy".

Certainly there are those who were at Newcastle United in 2009, when the club were relegated for the first time in the Premier League era, who admit they expected tensions to surface sooner.

In his new book, Reboot: My Life, Owen has opened up about the fallout following what was a good friendship between him and Shearer.

"Perhaps rather than examine his own shortcomings, it felt easier to blame Michael Owen".

Shearer was Newcastle's interim manager for the final eight games of their ill-fated campaign. Not only that, it transpired that he was telling anyone who'd listen what he thought of me.

Alan Shearer class reaction on referring to an interview Michael Owen did with BT Sport in 2018 when Owen said 'All I did for the last six, seven years of my career, I hated it.

Shearer's caption reply was "yes Michael, we thought that also, whilst on £120k a week...."

Responding to a sly dig from Shearer on Twitter, Owen said: "Not sure you are as loyal to Newcastle as you make out mate. Once you've read the book you'll make your own decision".

"You tried everything to get out". In my time he never really looked comfortable.

Their efforts for club and country saw them showered with praise, with Shearer lifting a Premier League title at Blackburn while Owen collected a number of domestic honours and the Ballon d'Or with Liverpool.
