Michael Owen wants to concentrate on working hard on the field for Newcastle United, and seems more concerned about that, than anything else.
Michael Owen – wants to play hard for the Newcastle team
Michael has had another injury hit season, but heâ€™s still managed 6 goals for Newcastle and 2 for England this season, and thereâ€™s a good likelihood heâ€™ll start to score more goals for Newcastle though the end of the season. New manager Kevin Keagan is determined for his Newcastle side to supply Owen with more chances, that he usually puts away.
Indeed on Sunday he should have had two goals, with one good goal he scored after 5 minutes, being disallowed for no apparent good reason.
Michael talked to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today from the England training camp. Where they are preparing for tomorrow nightâ€™s game against Switzerland:
â€œIâ€™ve been down this road many times in my career.â€ â€œBut one thing I will always do is work hard for the team.â€
â€œI have done that over the last three games even though I havenâ€™t had any chances of notes.â€
â€œI had a chance or two against Boro and stuck one away and it was only three games ago since my last goal.â€
â€œI was more frustrated with the end result.â€
Michael seems to have come out of his shell a little since Kevin arrived. maybe that’s because he’s now captain of the team, but it seems to have done him a lot of good.
We’re really looking forward to seeing Michael finally start scoring goals on a regular basis for the Magpies.
