Carragher warns Owen over frosty Anfield reception

Table of Contents
Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has warned former team-mate Michael Owen to expect a frosty reception when he returns to Anfield with Manchester United next month.

Owen progressed through the club's youth ranks at Kirkby before going on to score an impressive 118 goals in 216 appearances for Liverpool.

He also helped the Reds to win the FA Cup, the UEFA Cup and two League Cups during his eight-year spell at Anfield.

Such records would guarantee a warm welcome upon his return to Merseyside on October 25 - had not he sign for biggest rivals United.

"Our fans are usually brilliant with former players but he might get a cool reception," Carragher told the October edition of the Sky Magazine. "That won't bother him though.

"You can understand the fans' point of view. He used to play for us and now he's at our big rivals so of course there will be some reaction.

"That's football and Michael will know that.

"At the same time, Michael has got his own career to think about. He wants to get his name back up there, he wants to play Champions League football and get into the World Cup squad.

"The move gives him that opportunity. It will upset some fans but that's football.

"He's a mate of mine so I suppose I have to wish him well but only to a certain extent."
