Michael Owen accuses Newcastle of lying

Stoke City player Michael Owen has accused Newcastle United of lying, saying that the club did not offer him a new contract in 2009 before he moved to Manchester United, despite Newcastle claiming they did. Owen, who will retire from football at the end of the season, angered many Newcastle fans by leaving the club in 2009 after the club had just been relegated from the Premier League. Newcastle told the press that they had offered him a new contract, and Owen has gone on twitter and said that the club were “lying.”

“Despite the club saying they did, they didn’t ever offer me a new contract despite them putting it in the press,” Owen tweeted. How could they when they had just been relegated? It would have been financial suicide.”

‘I’ve seen it a million times, a club will blatantly lie to their fans to take the moral high ground leaving the player with no leg to stand on.’
