This is not good news, as the Newcastle club said today that Michael Owen will undergo a scan on an injured groin later today.
Michael Owen – tweaked his groin in training yesterday
The Newcastle captain apparently pulled the groin during training yesterday, and has been given only a 50-50 chance of turning out against Manchester City on Monday night.
Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear said today:
“He tweaked his groin in training so he is a big doubt.” “It’s 50-50 whether he plays for the Man City match.”
“Then we will find out more, we are just assessing the situation.”
If there’s any doubt we should send Michael to Germany to meet with Dr. Ulrike Muschaweck at her Munich clinic. She is the best surgeon in the world on these things, and has already fixed up Owen, Shearer and Shay Given.
She would be able to see if she could do something to help Michael recover quickly, and maybe be ready for the Monday game, although time is short. She’s the doctor that had Michael ready in 10 days about 12 months ago, following the operation on Michael’s groin.
But this is not the news we want to hear, with Michael in good goal scoring form right now.
