Just seen the news @themichaelowen to retire. What a top player and also a top guy. Pleasure to say played in same team.
@themichaelowen All the best mate, one of the best of all time.
@themichaelowen Top career! Privileged to have worked with you.. All the best for the future
@themichaelowen End it with a bang!
Michael Owen has given football fans fantastic moments. But one of the strangest transfers in Stoke City's history.
Sime@yyydelilah10@themichaelowen Sad news. My ticket from THAT night in Munich is still cherished. Would love to see you bag a hattrick in a Stoke shirt.
I feel really, really sorry for Owen. His last season as a pro should have been so much better than this.
David Richards @IlforddaveSCFC
@themichaelowen well cheers for the goal youth, and keeping that bench warm n splinter free.
@themichaelowen I just wish we could of seen a bit more of you, all the best for the future.
8 - Michael Owen is one of only eight players to score hat-tricks for more than one club in the Champions League. Trebles.
OptaJoe@OptaJoe23 - No player has ever reached 100 Premier League goals at a younger age than @themichaelowen did (23y 134d). Prodigy.
