Premiership Picks

Just when you thought Michael Owen had caused enough damage for a day, out comes another part of his now infamous book.

The 39-year-old’s autobiography has caused quite the stir, and his comments on Newcastle certainly kicked things off.

Now, the ex-England international has opted to get under the skin of another one of his former clubs, this time targeting Manchester United legend David Beckham.

In the latest piece from his book that is being serialised in The Daily Mirror, Owen admits he still holds resentment towards Beckham after the latter’s sending-off against Argentina in the 1998 World Cup.

After hearing the former striker’s comments, United fans took to Twitter to voice their opinion about the matter.

Many supporters of the Manchester side insisted there is a sense of irony as they hold some “resentment” with him for taking the number seven shirt when he arrived at Old Trafford.

Some Red Devils fans slammed him for trying to create a bit of manufactured controversy in order to sell his book.

Check out some of the furious reaction of United fans below:
