Should Owen be staying at United?

He is really the injury king of soccer. He got injured in record time again, right after he was match fit! And I hate how he denies that he is plagued by injury, blaming it on bad luck instead. Thankfully his wage isn't that big. Do you think he should be leaving United? http://sportales.com/sports/should-michael-owen-leave-manchester-united/

I think when Owen signed for Man U he clearly understood the role that would be assigned for him. He knew he would not be a full time player, but one who comes from the bench. That has been his role since then, so I am not sure why he should not be staying on in United. Given his medical track record, I think this is the best that he can hope for. Cheers! Ram

i don't know how much is his salary but what I know is he paid as he play. It means he haven't been paid for a long time already since he have not playing for a long time. If his wage structure is like most of the players, I think he was sold off already. But since he only get paid when he play, that is why ManU happy to keep him.

I believe this will be the last club he will be. I guess he will try and stay on for as long as possible, before embarking on a football manager career.

I think that if Owen is offered a new contract then it might be on a pay as you play contract because he does seem to be injured the majority of the time.

It's better for him to step down... MU should let him go, useless to keep him along.. MU already has Owen Hargreaves who has same problem...

He mentioned that he will retire from soccer with Man Utd does not renew his contract. Playing in a lower league is not an option for him. Owen got to get in touch with reality. While he was good, he must realise that his body could no longer take the pressure of performing in the top league. His constant injuries are a remainder.

I don't really know. What I know about Owen is that he started as a wonder kid, but after winning the Golden Ball his career shows a straight downward tendency. I don't know if this happened because of his injuries or because he didn't took football serious anymore. Anyways, I heard that he is planning to retire because he got tired of being injured so many times and never being able to play a long period of time in succession. If he wants to start his career over again he has to play regularly and I don't see him playing every game for ManU so it is better for him to find himself a team like WBA for instance. But he should know better what he has to do.
