Owen on his La Liga adventure

Owen on his La Liga adventure

Speaking to the Times about his move from the Dippers to Spain it seems Little Micky didn't have the greatest time during his year in the capital:

'I moved out there [Madrid] for all the right reasons. I knew that if I turned down the opportunity I might regret it all my life. Everyone I spoke to agreed. In some ways I had to get it out of my system, a bit like owning a boy-racer car and yet, looking back, I knew that after about two months that I was doing one year and one year only.

I knew quickly that I wasn't going to take to it. You need the trust of your manager but I was scoring goals and still coming off. It sickens you and you think 'I want to go home'. I am glad for the experience even if the main thing I learned was that living abroad is not for me.'
