Michael Owen may become a football agent

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has said that he ponders becoming a football agent as he believes young footballers need proper guidance.

The 33-year-old ex-England international said: “Representing players has been on my mind for three or four years.

“Conversations in a dressing room change. When you are 17 or 18 it is all about cars and girls. When you are older, you start to talk about managers and tactics.

“You ask what your agent does and you think about things a lot more. The general perception of footballers annoys me and they need help in certain situations.

“Not many people are born to be a role model. It is thrust upon them. They have to learn fast and understand what gets them into trouble. Social media is an absolute minefield and you cannot prepare someone for becoming a millionaire in the blink of an eye.”
