'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Michael Owen slams JosÚ Mourinho

Michael Owen has hit out at Inter Milan gaffer JosÚ Mourinho's comments insinuating that the England International is no longer good enough at the highest level. Mourinho's statement came after Owen was linked with a potential transfer to Inter in the weeks leading up to the reopening of the January transfer window.

'I have never thought of him,' Mourinho told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

'In the last year, he has had major injuries and is no longer the Owen that we knew.'

But Owen has now decided to correct the 'Special One' and put the Portuguese man back in his place with a few observations of his own.

'You can look at stats whichever way you want but in general I have had a good year really in terms of games and goals,' stated Owen.

Owen has scored nine goals in fourteen appearances for the Magpies this term, but has not scored in the last four games. In terms of injuries, 2008 was a fairly good year for the former-Real Madrid man, having missed only four games through injury.

'I have only missed four in the last calendar year. Considering what is said about me, it can paint a false picture. Just to miss four games in a year is good and my goal ratio is good too, it has been a good year from that point of view.'

His future at Newcastle is however in dispute after it was reported that he had entered into a 'gentleman's agreement' with Manchester City enabling him to join the Abu Dhabi-owned club in the summer on a Bosman transfer.
