Michael Owen Back In Three Weeks

Michael Owen has said he is right on track to recover from his ankle ligament injury within six weeks, as was initially diagnosed.


Michael Owen – back in 3 weeks

Michael spoke today in the official match day program:

“I’m right on schedule for a mid-March return,” “After I damaged my ankle ligaments three-and-a-half weeks ago the specialist said it would be six weeks to recovery, and that’s exactly what it looks like being.”

“It should be full training for me by the start of March and, hopefully, fully fit and available again for the game at Hull City on March 14th.”

“With the injured lads getting back to fitness the picture can quickly change. What’s important is that as many players as possible return to a winning team firing on all cylinders.”

“That’s another reason why the 3-2 win at West Bromwich in our last match was so important.”

Quite honestly, after hearing yesterday that Michael had been doing so well in his recuperation in Portugal, we were hoping he would be back a little sooner, and we’re a but disappointed he will miss the Bolton Wanderers game.

Bu Michael has never been a quick healer, and the Hull City game will have to be good enough, since we’ll still have 10 games remaining, so Michael can help fire us to safety.

Comments welcome.

    when we’re safe let him go and bring in a young striker, like derdiyok, young with ability and no injury problems or crazy wage demands. ..
    Good news though that he’ll be back soon .. 🙂

    if he was at a big club they would have sold him last year.he is injury prone,expensive and his work rate is poor in a struggling team.he only looks good when playing alongside viduka.who altho never fit has a far superior footballing brain than anyone else in our team.

    Michael Owen WAS world class, He ain’t now! Id love him to stay but for a huge pay drop. If we could get him to sign for 50 000 a week (we know he wouldn’t) then keep him otherwise let him go. I don’t think we look a better team with Owen in, he don’t work hard enough for me.

    The only way we should keep Owen is on a pay for play contract like Saha has at Everton. Otherwise he’s too expensive for us to keep on the books.

    Why would he want to be a “quick healer”? He’s getting over £100,000 to go to the races and watch his horses and then drop by aspers. I hoestly don’t think his heart is with us now (if it ever was). He would’ve signed before now if he’d really wanted to play for us. I really don’t think we’ll miss him when he leaves in the summer.
