Amidst interest from Aston Villa, Sir Alex Ferguson has said Michael Owen still has a role to play at Old Trafford.
Only last week former Liverpool legend spoke of his frustration with the lack of playing time at United, but Sir Alex Ferguson still sees him as a part of his plans.
“I understand Michael’s frustration, he’s exactly right. But it’s because Berbatov has started the season so well, then the international break came, it’s difficult.
“We’ve got this Carling Cup game on Wednesday and he’ll start that. He’ll get enough football, Michael. It’s just the early season with the internationals that disrupt you; there are four games over two, two-week spells now since the start of the season.
“I agree he probably thinks it’s passing him by but he’s doing well in training, never misses a session. I brought him on for the last 20 minutes the other night but I could have brought on three centre-forwards and we would not have made a chance the way Rangers set out.”
