MOST COMMENTED

Stoke City striker Michael Owen, who last week announced that he would retire from professional soccer at the end of the season, has said that he wants to get involved in the business end of managing players’ careers once his playing career is over.  

"On July 1, I propose to set up Michael Owen Management Ltd. focusing on guiding young players through their careers and offering them advice at every juncture of what can be a career full of pitfalls," Owen, 33, wrote on his personal Web site. He added that seeing “so many horror stories” and learning from his own experience had moved him to want to become an agent.

"I feel genuinely excited by the opportunity of guiding some of our best talent through their formative years and beyond," the former Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle and Manchester United striker said of his plans. "Having already spoken with a number of people within the game, I get a real sense that they too feel that I can play an important role in helping to nurture talented youngsters into our stars of the future both on and off the pitch."
