A close-up look at one of the world's most gifted strikers, with a global reputation for incisive running, neat play, and deadly finishing In this revealing biography, Oliver Derbyshire speaks to Owen's family, friends, and teammates and reveals the full story of an athlete destined to be ranked alongside the World's greatest. Signing for Liverpool at 17, Michael Owen soon made his mark at the highest level: in the 1997–1998 season he was voted PFA Young Player of the Year. The first British player in 20 years to be crowned European Footballer of the Year, Michael then helped Liverpool to League Cup, FA Cup, and UEFA Cup victories. He sought a fresh challenge with a move to join the galacticos at Real Madrid in 2004, but he couldn't resist a return to the Premiership. Newcastle United stepped in and in 2005, Owen became a Magpie. After a career-threatening injury at the 2006 World Cup and management uncertainty at St. James's Park, Michael endured a turbulent time. But then came Manchester United, with Sir Alex Ferguson taking a chance on Owen in 2009. He has blossomed in his new role at Old Trafford, taking on the coveted number 7 shirt and scoring vital goals—ironically, for Liverpool's most bitter rivals.
