Out of Luck?
Once regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world, Owen Hargreaves is now unsure where, or when he’ll play next.
The 30-year-old left his home in Calgary fourteen years ago to try his luck with German club Bayern Munich, a move that paid off greatly. He won four league titles and a Champions League medal with that club, before being sold for massive money to English giants Manchester United in 2007. There, he won another Champions League trophy in his first season at Old Trafford, along with an EPL title…but that is where his luck would end.
The England international developed tendonitis in his knee the following season, and after appearing in 34 games in 2007-08, he would feature just five times over the next three years. In fact, he lasted just five minutes in his lone appearance last season, with a hamstring injury as the culprit this time around.
Needless to say, Man U didn’t offer Hargreaves a new contract this summer, but he’s not taking it lying down! (AFTER THE JUMP: Hargreaves gets creative, Swedish jersey swap, sick Gongshow vid) (more…)
