Last night, our former striker, who ran his contract down and left for Real Madrid – before eventually joining Manchester United – spoke gleefully about his time at Old Trafford on Canal+.

Owen was directing his comments at Karim Benzema, thanking the Frenchman for signing for Real Madrid in 2007, which allowed him to move to United.
