Rooney Believes Michael Owen Will Be A Success In Manchester United


Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is predicting that Michael Owen’s move from Newcastle United to Old Trafford will give the England sharp-shooter a new lease of life.

After Newcastle’s relegation from the Premier League, Michael Owen’s career appeared to be heading for the buffers until Sir Alex Ferguson stepped in with the offer of a two-year contract which could turn out to be one of the Scot’s masterstrokes.

Nothing too much will be read into Owen’s goal at the Bukit Jalil Stadium that gave United a 3-2 win over a Malaysian Select XI they will also face in the same stadium later on Monday.

However, Rooney can sense his old international colleague is ready to explode again.

Rooney told reporters at the Bukit Jalil Stadium that for the past few years Michael Owen has had some criticism but it would have been difficult for any player to score in the Newcastle team he was in last season.

Rooney also added that Owen looked really sharp in training and that he is working very hard and you could see by the way all the lads celebrated with him how pleased they were for him when he scored.

Rooney strongly believes that this move will give Michael Owen a new lease of life.
