England and Liverpool legend Owen has agent ambitions
Michael Owen is interested in becoming a football agent, as well as work in the media when he retires from Stoke at the end of the season. "There are two main things I want to do, both in football. That is what I know, that is what I am good at, and I like to think I know what I am talking about," he told Sky Sports News.
"Firstly, in the media, I would like to do some TV work, maybe write blogs and different things media-related. The second would be to set up a management business that predominately looks after younger players, and see them throughout their career to take them from the start.
"It is a tough world and a tough sport and there are plenty of pitfalls and I think I would be good at passing on my advice.
"I have to say I was managed pretty well, and was really pleased with my agent. Agent is a scary word but they are a necessity for certain things in football and it is important you get the right one. I think there is a gap in the market for me and I think I can do well."
