United striker Owen feels the fact that such a suggestion has even surfaced considering how Wenger has guided the Gunners' fortunes down the years only serves to emphasise Sir Alex Ferguson's success.
"Arsene Wenger is one of the best managers to have ever managed in the Premier League," said Owen.
"He has turned the club around and done fantastically well over the years.
"It just highlights what our manager has done.
"The success he has had here in such a fiercely competitive business such as this is amazing."
