Owen has been picking the brains of Paul Ince, his next-door neighbour in Portugal.
He is eager to expand his knowledge of the football business, and is unafraid of the privations of life in the lower Leagues..
Owen told the Sunday Mirror: "I wouldn't rule out anything. When Chester were in the mire, I thought, 'I'd love to help save them, get them up a few divisions'.
"Serving my apprenticeship, lower down, wouldn't scare me. I'd want something to take forward, to snowball.
"Look at clubs like Sheffield Wednesday, Leeds, Newcastle. Big fan bases, great support.
"Whoever manages them has a real chance of getting those places rocking!"
