Liverpool were not interested in signing former Man Utd star

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists that his side were not interested in signing Michael Owen this summer.

Owen was available as a free agent after having been released by Manchester United at the end of last season.

The former Real Madrid star was linked with a return to Liverpool, but ended up signing a one-year contract with Stoke.

“Liverpool didn’t consider Michael Owen,” Rodgers said. “If we didn’t get the targets that we hoped to get in the transfer window, I was going to go with what I had.

“There’s no point putting money into the academy and then not giving young players a chance. Look at the impact Raheem Sterling has made as a 17-year-old. All I’ve given him is an opportunity and he’s gone on and taken it.

“We’ve got a number of other young talents and hopefully over the coming months we can see them and see how they flourish.”
