JESU Christi, it’s all a bit Liverpool-heavy on the wire of late.
Anywhom, this morning comes the news that Manchester United’s in-house stable boy Michael Owen is to become a Liverpool player once again next month after leaving the club for Real Madrid six years ago.
Owen is, of course, returning to Anfield to take part in Jamie Carragher‘s testimonial game that will see a Liverpool XI (including ex-Reds Danny Murphy, Jamie Redknapp, Emile Heskey and Jason McAteer) take on an Everton XI on 4th September with all proceeds going to Carragher’s 23 Foundation.
United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has granted Owen permission to play for 45 minutes in the exhibition game, in a bid to help regain some much-needed match fitness and form.
Anyone else predicting an innocuous but career-threatening injury?
