Owen will not leave Man Utd

New Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier has admitted he would be keen on signing the 30-year-old in the January transfer window.

“I’m not aware of Gerard wanting him but, anyway, he’s wasting his time there,” Ferguson told The People.

“I understand Michael’s frustration, but Dimitar Berbatov has started the season so well.

“He’ll start against Scunthorpe in the Carling Cup and he’ll get enough football this season.”
