Michael Owen`s agency have today come out and strenuously denied any circumstances where our current number 10 will be retiring. The striker has been bang out of form, which has led many column inches to stating he`ll be taking the Mick Quinn route into horse racing rather than flogging his way through another contract half heartedly. His representatives said:

“Any suggestion or unfounded speculation that Michael Owen has any intention of quitting football is totally untrue and wrong. Michael remains as committed to his football career as he ever has been and is deeply and professionally offended that anyone should suggest otherwise.

Michael Owen has instructed lawyers this evening and will take action against any publication which he feels inaccurately or unfairly suggested he is quitting football and is damaging to his professional reputation.’
