Liverpool fans at odds with Michael Owen

eNewsletter

Liverpool fans are launching a petition to have Michael Owen axed as a club ambassador.

The Daily Mail reports Liverpool fan Tony Barrett started the petition in reaction to Owen's punditry on BT Sport's coverage of the Europa League final on Wednesday night.

During the broadcast of the match, which United won 2-0 against Ajax, Owen referred to Jose Mourinho's side as 'we' despite his role with the Anfield club.

"Michael Owen has been a disgrace towards his position as Liverpool's International Ambassador and he must be stripped from the position immediately," reads the Change.org petition.

"Michael Owen openly supports rivals and shows zero respect to Liverpool, until it suits him.

"On Wednesday night during the Europa League final, live on BT Sport, Michael Owen referred to Man Utd as 'We'.

"As Liverpool ambassador Liverpool supporters did not take this well and that was the final straw. The club and supporters deserve someone who will give 100% to the club and the only 'we' should be when referring to the club paying you."
