Michael Owen ruled out for rest of season

Manchester United striker Michael Owen will not play again this season after pulling his hamstring in the 2-1 Carling Cup win over Aston Villa.

The 30-year-old, who scored United's equaliser at Wembley, pulled up while chasing a pass in the first half.

The injury all-but ends Owen's hopes of playing for England at the World Cup.

"It is more serious than we thought. I think the heavy pitch at Wembley played some part, but it's also bad luck," said United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Owen, who will have one year remaining on his two-year contract at Old Trafford at the end of this season, was initially expected to be only out for a few weeks, but will now undergo surgery on Monday.

He said: "I have loved every minute of my first campaign with Manchester United and have already enjoyed some memorable moments.

"I am determined to come back at the start of next season in peak condition."

Owen, who has scored 40 goals in 89 games for England, admitted in February that he was not expecting a World Cup call from coach Fabio Capello.

He last played for the national side in March 2008 in a 1-0 friendly defeat by France, but has not featured in a squad since.

"It's been a long time since I was in the England squad. You never give up but it's probably a long shot in racing terms," Owen told BBC Sport last month.

And that call seems even less likely now, considering Capello said he would only recall Owen if he was playing regularly for United.

He has scored nine goals in all competitions this season, including a hat-trick in the Champions League win against Wolfsburg and an injury-time winner in September's Manchester derby.

BBC

Gutted for the lad. But he has been crocked since ages so you can't really be surprised. He was a decent buy for all that he did this season considering no fee was involved.

Now is the time for Mame and Kiko to step up.

Thats Sad. Out for the rest of the season. Wretched Season as far as injuries are concerned.




Yes, Mame did impress in his first few outings although small. We know what Kiko can do, so lets see.

Berba alone upfront indirectly means a 6 man midfield tongue

Joking aside yeah I think we'll start with Berba and Mame.
