Owen is regarded as one of the Premier League’s and especially England’s greatest striker ever, Owen scored a whopping 150 Premier League goals in his career.
However, there’s no doubt the latter part of his career was far less inspiring than his breakthrough years for Liverpool and England.
Something of a comical figure since retiring and becoming a pundit, it’s refreshing to see this different side to Owen as he speaks so candidly about his injury difficulties and how that affected him psychologically.
