Man Utd striker Owen: Gaffer has told me how I will be used this term
The former England striker accepts he won't be a regular starter.
Owen said: "This year I scored against Scunthorpe. Next game I was on the bench, but came on and scored and then we went to Valencia, used three strikers and I was an unused sub.
"Straight after the game the manager came up and talked to me about it.
"When you are younger you don't think rationally about things but now I understand what I'm trying to do. You see the game and how it's transpiring. Every striker is different. I wouldn't be good coming on in certain games.
"When we are having possession and need a goal, at Old Trafford for example, I'd be suited to it.
"But if it's away at Arsenal, and it's an even game, probably a different type of player would be better suited."
