Liverpool legend Michael Owen tried to take some credit for Real Madrid winning the Champions League at the weekend by posted a rather interesting claim to how he is linked with the new champions of Europe.
Owen’s one and only season in Spain wasn’t all he hoped for as he was often considered a back up to Raul and Fernando Morientes, but did manage to bag himself 13 goals despite mainly coming on as a substitute.
Sergio Ramos, who scored the injury time equalizer in the Champions League final against Atletico Madrid, was, acording to Owen, bought with the funds that was made after the club sold him to Newcastle.
Once the equalizer went it, the game was forced into extra time, where Carlo Ancelotti’s men took over the match to win 4-1 against Diego Simeone’s side.
All this was possible thanks to the purchase of Ramos, through the sale of the English striker… or so he thinks.
Nice to see the money used from the sale of me produce the goods! Real confirmed the signing of Ramos once they agreed to sell me. #GoodSwap
