Owen: 'My Feeling Of Guilt'

Michael Owen has his own problems at the moment, but he says he feels guilt at not producing the goods at Newcastle.

Owen: 'I can control my emotions and I can honestly say that when I was flat on my back with ice-packs around my knee, it wasn't self-pity I was feeling but guilt.

'I was sending text messages apologising to all sorts of people for letting them down.

'I feel really guilty when I think of the people at Newcastle United. I think of the chairman Freddy Shepherd, who has invested all that money (Owen cost 17million from Real Madrid) and Glenn Roeder, the manager, who has kept in touch through the tournament and been very supportive. And those great fans who have only seen me for 11 matches.'

But, what with Liverpool making the signing of ex-Newcastle striker Craig Bellamy, we can rule out any chance of Owen returning to Anfield. That has been the rumour all summer.

But it does pose the question, who has got the better deal?

Doesn't that say a lot about the man? I really wish him well in his recovery and hope he's back to his best and in the Newcastle shirt again by the new year.

owen should never have gone to newcastle or rela madrid for that matter, should have stayed at a club that can win trophies, unlike newcastle, owen does not want to be at a that club and really wants a return back to anfield.
