Where is Michael Owen now?
One of only seven players to score 150 Premier League goals and also the youngest player to score 100 Premier League goals, Michael Owen retired at the end of the 2012-13 season.
A career which was unfortunately marred by injuries still provided Michael Owen with a Premier League title medal whilst at Manchester United along with a fantastic international record scoring 40 goals for England in 89 appearances.
He also won the Balon D’Or in 2001 after his goalscoring exploits helped Liverpool win the League Cup, FA Cup and UEFA Cup that year.
Upon retiring from playing, Owen was signed up by BT Sport as a co-commentator for their Premier League coverage.

In February 2014, Owen joined betting company Bet Victor as a brand ambassador sharing his views and opinions through Twitter and the Bet Victor website. He is also a global brand ambassador for Spey Whiskey.
Owen is also an investor in sports social network Sportslobster a one-stop shop for sports fans, featuring results, upcoming events, news, rumours, blogs, and chat functions.
In April 2016, Owen was appointed as Liverpool FC’s first international ambassador which will involve him engaging with fans around the world and representing the club at various fan and commercial events.
Unfortunately this appointment was not popular with the Liverpool fans who set up a petition to get him removed from his post.
The reason was mainly due to Owen’s commentary for BT Sport where he referred to Manchester United as ‘we’ during the Europa League final.
In July 2017 Owen represented England in Star Sixes, a six-a-side indoor international tournament at the O2 in London featuring some of the world’s most iconic footballers.
A horseracing enthusiast, Michael Owen co-owns a thriving training yard called Manor House Stables and even had a go as a jockey himself in 2017 in a charity race at Ascot finishing in second place.
