A couple of big injury stories this morning:
1) Michael Owen is out for the rest of the season
Alex Ferguson confirmed Owen would miss the rest of the campaign after picking up a leg injury in the League Cup final last Sunday. It was initially thought to be a minor hamstring tweak, but it is more serious than that and requires an operation.
“It’s a bad blow – he’s out for the season,” Ferguson said. “Unfortunately it’s more serious than we thought. He will be operated on on Monday morning.
“It’s a terrible blow for the lad and is disappointing news for us too.
“He has never missed a training session all season.
