Owen Sympathy For Rooney

Owen Sympathy For Rooney

It's interesting to see how the knives are out for Sven-Goran Eriksson the second he leaves his England post.

And the most quiet of the lot - Michael Owen - has suddenly found his voice.

Never a man to make waves, Owen always sits on the fence. But a sudden gust of wind, and the Toon striker has actually made a controvertial statement.

He says Sven-Goran Eriksson's decision to play Wayne Rooney as a lone striker during last Saturday's World Cup clash with Portugal was the reason the players were sent home after defeat.

Owen: 'You would suggest Rooney's probably only got angry because of what's happened in the first hour of that game. It's a frustrating role to play.

'Wayne Rooney is one of the best strikers in the world and you're cutting one of his legs off if you're playing just one up front.'

Surprised to see Owen jumping on the anti-Eriksson band-wagon, though to be fair what he has said is fair play. Eriksson didn't do such a bad job, he got us to and out of the group stages of all the competitions he was in charge for, which is more than what can he said for the previous few incumberants at the helm. On a related note, I'd like to know what Materazzi said to Zidane...
