"He is a great player. He is only 29 and for me he is in the peak of his career. The way United play and the way they dominate possession it will suit Michael's game," said Robson.

Robson then went on to state that Owen's move to Old Trafford could help him reclaim a place in the England squad, continuing, "He will be in and around the box and I can see him scoring a lot of goals."
