CROUCH BACKS OWEN

The striker of Stoke City, Peter Crouch, has said that Michael Owen has still got a lot of football left in him and he would definitely be able to make a comeback in the England national side.

Michael Owen has recently signed for Stoke City. Crouch thinks that Owen is a very good buy and he would definitely deliver for the club. He told the reporters that if Owen remains 100% fit, he would score a number of goals for the club in the current season.

As per Crouch, if Owen gets regular first team chances at Stoke and he scores goals, the English selectors would be forced to bring this experienced player back into the national team. Crouch said that Owen’s presence in the Stoke camp would help the young guys a lot. He is a highly experienced player and he can give a lot of valuable tips to the young players.

Stoke didn’t have to pay any transfer fee for signing Owen. Owen’s contract with Manchester United had got finished at the end of the last season and he was released by the club. So, Stoke has got Owen on a free transfer. On being asked about that, Crouch said that the club is lucky to have signed a great player like Owen on a free transfer. The club couldn’t have had a better deal than that.

The manager of Stoke City, Tony Pulis, has also expressed his delight after signing Owen. Pulis said that Owen has put up some great performances for various clubs over the years. But, at the same time, Pulis also said that Owen would have to work a bit on his fitness. He had been out of the game since the last three months and he needs a bit of time to become match fit. Once he achieves the match fitness, he would be given regular first team chances.
