Man City boss Eriksson admits Owen admiration

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson has admitted his admiration for Newcastle United striker Michael Owen.

"Michael Owen is one of the best English goalscorers of all time, which tells you everything you need to know about him," said the Swede. "A fit Michael Owen is a danger for everyone. He is very clever and in the box he is outstanding.

"No matter what team you manage, if you have a fit Michael Owen you know you are gifted.

"Your team can play averagely for a half, or an hour, or even for 90 minutes, but you know the first chance he gets, he will probably score.

"If you have three chances in one game, he will score two goals. He is ice cool."
