Manchester United striker Michael Owen won't rule out a coaching career.

Owen enjoyed a Q&A with fans on Twitter last night and revealed he was doing his coaching badges.

"I'm doing my badges just in case," he revealed.

Asked his requirements for a top footballer, Owen replied: "Pace A football brain Determination."

Interestingly, following yesterday's news his injury would keep him out for six weeks, Owen replied to one question about retirement: "Isn't that inevitable? Doesn't everybody get older?"
