Owen Faces The Knife

Owen Faces The Knife



The 26-year-old faces the second of two operations by renowned specialist Richard Steadman, who will perform the procedure later this week.

Owen has already had his damaged cartilage repaired, and now Dr Steadman will tackle the anterior cruciate ligament Owen ruptured barely a minute into England's World Cup finals clash with Sweden back in June.

Owen: 'I will be having the operation done in a couple of days, and I'm confident, with positive thinking, I will be back and as good as ever.\I was watching an operation on TV the other day of someone having their cruciate done, and it is quite a gory operation.

'But it needs to be done and I am looking forward to having it done and then having a chink of light at the end of the tunnel. Since this last operation, it has just been biding time, really, until I have the major one done.

'At last, we can have the main one done and get on with the rehabilitation.

'To start with, I will just be trying to move the knee and get everything feeling fine. Obviously, the time is going to be spent healing, but I will be trying to keep as fit as I can and as strong as I can so when it is time to come back, I have as little time as possible in the reserves and in practice matches, and get straight into what I want to be in, and that is the first team.'
