Despite all and sundry backing him to be one of the first faces out of the door at Old Trafford this summer, Manchester United have confirmed that Ickle Micky Owen has been handed a one-year contract extension.
“Michael has proved to be a top footballer. It is unfortunate that he did not get more opportunities but the form of Chicharito put everyone in the shade and his partnership with Rooney proved invaluable.
“I am delighted Michael is staying for a further year and we will look to give him more opportunities in the new season.”
Looks like Berba’s on his way after all, no?
