Michael Owen on Sir Alex Ferguson: Former Liverpool star responds after Manchester United legend claims his injury woes started at just 17

Speaking to talkSPORT about his new explosive autobiography, Owen was discussing the legendary manager’s assessment that he played too much football, much too young.

The former striker asked his old Man United boss to write a foreword for his new book, Reboot: My Life, My Time, and in it Fergie claimed Owen’s injury woes all began when he was just 17 after playing for England in successive summers following his breakout campaign for Liverpool.

“I always think there are crucial moments in a player’s career – their first-team debut, first goal or getting married, because they are all stepping stones,” writes Ferguson.

“For me, in tracking Michael’s career, one crucial moment was in 1997 when he played for the England youth team in Malaysia [in the FIFA World Youth Championships, now the FIFA U20 World Cup].

“In the team were two of our players, John Curtis and Ronnie Wallwork.

“They were away for a month in gruelling conditions, so we made the decision to give our two lads a month’s rest in order for them to recover physically – but not for Michael, he went straight into Liverpool’s first team!”
