|Michael Owen spent the vast majority of his time at Manchester United on the bench|
The striker took a break from looking for a new club to ask his nearly 1.5 million+ followers to send him their questions "on anything" using the hashtag #AskMOwen.
The session received a huge response but we doubt Owen will want to regularly look through some of the cruel but hilarious replies that we've picked out below:
#askMOwen Where do you get your tickets from for the match? I see you every week and they're good seats in the crowd.— Andre Villas-Boas (@AndreVillyB) July 22, 2012
#askMOwen Is it true you will only sign for a team if they have a heated bench ?— Steve Demba Wilson (@steveuk30) July 22, 2012
Do you feel a great affinity with Bradley Wiggins, who has also won a championship while sitting down? #askMOwen— MirrorFootball (@MirrorFootball) July 22, 2012
#AskMOwen are your horses as injury prone as you were?— Greg Larmouth (@greglarmouth) July 22, 2012
Should more footballers support the ailing UK print industry by commissioning glossy promotional brochures? #askMOwen— Neil Tague (@NeilTague) July 22, 2012
To his credit, the 33-year-old took the taunts with very good grace.
Haha! Just started reading my #askMOwen timeline. Not quite what I had in mind but that's the beauty of Twitter!— michael owen (@themichaelowen) July 22, 2012
