Owen will have no qualms in accepting a Man Utd Premier League winner’s medal

Michael Owen accepts there are others far more deserving of a Premier League winner’s medal, but he still won’t be embarrassed in accepting a gong should Manchester United claim the title.

Michael Owen accepts there are others far more deserving of a Premier League winner’s medal, but he still won’t be embarrassed in accepting a gong should Manchester United claim the title.

For the former Liverpool and England striker it would represent the first league medal of his illustrious career, and leave him with only the Champions League to complete an entire set.

As he still requires one more appearance to qualify automatically, and only one of his nine contributions came from a place in the starting line-up.

"There are players who would be 10 times more deserving of a Premier League medal in this team than me, so it is not as though I will be flashing it around," the 31 year old said.

"But there is no point being embarrassed about accepting something you have been part of.

"I didn't get two medals for scoring two goals in the FA Cup final in 2001.

"I have won plenty in my career but I have not won the two big ones. That would complete the set.

"There is still quite a way to go, so let's hope there is something to pick up at the end of the season."
