Michael Owen details Liverpool feelings after United move
Michael Owen detailed his perception at Manchester United and Liverpool after the forward joined the few to cross the line when he signed for Sir Alex Ferguson’s side in 2009.

Despite the change in allegiance, Owen believes there is mutual respect on both sides of the East Lancs.
He told the Daily Mail:
âWell I’m doing really well in both. I’m respected at Man United; the derby winner, the Champions League treble, the cup final goal. It’s not like I’m there. one of their own, we know, but there is mutual respect and fond memories.
“But when I walk through the doors of Liverpool, it’s in my heart. I hated coming back as a player. It felt like I was hitting my brother. Being booed, I felt sick. My parents were shot.
“It rarely happens now, a weird voice might scream ‘You Manc’, but I can put it in a box. That doesn’t stop me from thinking that I would like to have the inheritance of Carra (Jamie Carragher) or Stevie. (Steven GÃ©rard).
“They won the Champions League the season I left. I wanted my friends to win, absolutely, but part of me was upset.”
