Michael Owen is not considered a ‘Liverpool Legend’ because of his betrayal and eventual decision to join Manchester United – but as a pundit – he probably gets a slightly raw deal.
He’s not horrendous anymore, yet every time he messes up it makes national news.
Must be quite difficult conditions in which to work…
Still, he’s rightly received criticism for something he said after Liverpool’s draw with Sevilla about Joe Gomez.
The former striker claimed that our 20-year-old isn’t tall enough to be a centre-back… even though he’s 6 ft. 2′.
“Joe Gomez isn’t tall enough to be a CB.”
He’s 6ft 2in – Carragher was 6ft.
Shut up you clueless idiot.
