Mort on Owen
With Michael Owen never really far from headline news it`s good to hear Chris Mort put a grounded view of the player and his future on Tyneside. Mort also admitted he hopes to have his contract sorted in the near future:
"I think Michael does incredibly well with things - if you look at the amount of column inches he receives, he does a brilliant job dealing with it. There are a number of players in the country where this is going to be the case. They have the media following their every move. I've not talked to Michael about a contact extension. We are enjoying seeing him fit and well again and performing well on the pitch. I don't feel now is the right time to talk about extending his contract. I think he just wants to get back to playing regular football. And it's great to see him back on the pitch which is where we want him.'
