Michael Owen scored 158 goals in 297 games for Liverpool between 1997 and 2004 and won two League Cups, the FA Cup and the UEFA Cup.

His exploits were enough to earn him legend status at the club, but his departure to Real Madrid left a bad taste in the mouths of most Liverpool fans.

Owen claimed in Ring of Fire, a recent book by Simon Hughes about Liverpool players of the 21st century, that he had wanted to return to Liverpool from the day he left and had made attempts, through his friend Jamie Carragher, to make the move happen.

The move never materialised and Owen joined Manchester United in 2009, which arguably permanently damaged his standing with Liverpool fans.

He’s now an “international ambassador” for Liverpool, and tweeted his support for the team during their 2-1 win over West Brom on Saturday at Anfield.

His former United teammate Wayne Rooney called him out over the tweet.
