Liverpool hero McAteer: Owen can't come back after signing for Man Utd

Liverpool hero Jason McAteer can't see Michael Owen returning to Anfield. McAteer says Owen 'burned his bridges' at Liverpool when he joined Manchester United.

He told talkSPORT: "I wouldn't take Owen back. I don't know if the love of the game has slightly gone out of him.

"He wasn't great at Man United. He was on the bench a lot, he picked up a few injuries, and he burned his bridges when he went there.

"He was highly regarded at Anfield, a bit of a legend really, and he sort of took the edge off that with a move to Man United. He needs to look after himself, obviously, and he maybe went there to win things, which he did, but sometimes you don't need to make a move like that."
