Man Utd striker Owen happy with his role

Michael Owen is happy to bide his time for a playing chance at Manchester United.

He is experienced enough to be prepared for whatever challenge faces him.

"I have been a striker for many years," he reflected. "I have been the number one choice and had people chomping at my heels. Now it is roles reversed but I can think of a lot worse places to be.

"When I train it is with the best players. When I play it is in front of fantastic fans in a great stadium and the quality is high.

"Who knows what the future holds. I hope I can be involved but I am not stupid there are a lot of top players here and if my chances are limited I will still have a smile on my face and still feel part of a fantastic club."
