Carragher jumps to defence of former Liverpool teammate Owen

Jamie Carragher has jumped to the defence of former Liverpool teammate Michael Owen.

Carragher believes a lot of the stick his former teammate gets is unjust.

“There's no doubt, in speaking to Michael, he's been desperate to do this book and get a lot off his chest for a while," he said.

“That is mainly down to his decision to leave Liverpool and, years later, join Manchester United.

“I tried to stop him doing both!

“I must say I think some of the stick from Liverpool fans is bang out of order considering what he did for the club and the reaction other players get who did nothing for Liverpool.

“It hurts Michael and his family, but hopefully this book will let people know the real story and why he came to these decisions.

“My only hope in reading it is he doesn't go into too much detail about the Liverpool FC Christmas parties!"
