      Michael Owen handed new Liverpool FC job

      Former Reds striker, now a pundit with BT Sport, has been handed a new role with the club

       

      Michael Owen has been named Liverpool’s first official international ambassador.

      The role will see the BT Sport pundit engaging with fans around the world, as well as representing the club at various fan and commercial events.

      The former Reds striker ran out for the club for seven years before his controversial move to Real Madrid in 2004, and is often criticised by supporters for the manner of his departure.

      Despite that, Owen returns to the club that gave him his first-team debut nearly 20 years ago.

      I fully disagree with this appointment. He played for arch rival and I can never forgive him. All my anger is because when I was growing up, he was my favourite player more than Gerrard but he betrayed our friendship.

      However as a Religion teacher, I forgave him but did not forget what he did.

      I could have forgiven Owen for playing at United, I just about forgive Rafa for managing Chelsea. Even our most respected managers have managed other teams so it would be hypocritical to single out Owen for that alone... what bothers me is I get the sense he has been bias against Liverpool in some ways since he played for United and for that reason alone the appointment of Owen in such a role is very controversial. I wouldn't be against him doing a role for our team but an ambassador is not the right role considering how the actual fans feel about Owen.

      No, playing for the Mancs on top of all the other crap such as thinking he was too good for us and all the negative crap he spouts about us is not forgiveable.

      The club should be ashamed of themselves for giving him such a role.

      However as a Religion teacher, I forgave him but did not forget what he did.

      Likewise. He was the golden boy when I was growing up. By some way my favourite player. Then he left for Real Madrid and his career never really was the same. By time he signed for Man Utd he was already on the wane so I never harboured any real malice towards him because of it and he proved it by not really doing anything of note there apart from score a last minute winner against Man City. It was more desperation on his part considering how he fu**ed up his career by leaving us. We delivered his great days for both club and country and in 2001 he was one of the greatest strikers in the world when in a red shirt. He should remember that and I like to think somewhere within him he does. I won't deny him the great times we had with him.

      He was only ever a player who looked after himself. With the exception of playing for England I don't think he really had much attachment in football which makes his decision to go into media a bit strange. At the end of the day, like with all of these 'ambassadorial roles' I really couldn't give a toss and I don't think anyone else should either.

      Send to the c**t to a remote island somewhere and let him be an ambassador there! I hold nothing against him for joining those fuckers because nobody else wanted him but more for his behaviour since playing for them. He's been all "United this, United that", "when I was at United blah blah blah", being the most arrogant pr**k ever and then constantly putting this club down. He doesn't deserve to cut the grass at the training ground nevermind be a f**king ambassador!

      Somebody has fu**ed up here.

      Edit: One thing I'll always love is how we won the Champions League in the first season he decided to f**k off to Madrid on the cheap!

      Michael Owen becomes LFC international ambassador

      Liverpool FC has today announced that Michael Owen will become the club's first official international ambassador.

      This new role will see the former Liverpool striker engaging with fans around the world and representing the club at various fan and commercial events.

      Owen, a product of the Reds' youth system, notched 158 goals in 297 appearances across seven seasons and was part of the team that won the historic treble of 2001, most notably scoring both goals in the 2-1 FA Cup final win over Arsenal.

      He remains the last Englishman and only Liverpool player to be named the best in Europe while at the club, having been awarded the Ballon d'Or in 2001.

      As international ambassador, Owen makes a welcome return to the club that gave him his first-team debut 20 years ago.

      On the appointment, he said: "As a Liverpool fan I am honoured and delighted to have been asked to play this international role for the club.

      "Liverpool FC is the world's greatest football family and it's great for me to be able to represent the club in an official capacity once again."

      He could have fooled me if he counts himself as a Liverpool fan.

      No little f**ker slime bag that played for the Scum and helped Ferguson have a jerk off dream on it should be anywhere near Anfield.

      On the appointment, he said: “As a Liverpool fan I am honoured and delighted to have been asked to play this international role for the club.

      The man has no shame.

      I suppose he sent the board a dossier and CV.

      Well, there's a turn up, Michael, I love Utd, Owen an ambassador for us! Why we've done this, I will never understand, I will still mute him when he's commentating on us.
      There are so, so many former Liverpool players who should be way ahead of him in the queue, I can only think it's because of the high profile he's got! Me, I don't care for high profile, I want true Liverpool legends to represent us.
