Michael Owen

Former International Footballer

England’s youngest ever goal scorer, Michael Owen has carved out an impressive career for himself from a young age. Enjoying his most prolific years whilst playing for his boyhood club of Liverpool, Owen received the Ballon d’Or in 2001 for his performances at club and country, eventually amassing 89 senior international caps after having represented England from U15s. The only Englishman to score in four major tournaments, Owen retired from professional football in 2013 and has since turned his attentions to a career as a football speaker, commentary, punditry and becoming a formidable after dinner speaker.

Turning into one of the most prolific and successful strikers to have ever pulled on a Liverpool jersey, Owen climbed through the youth ranks to the senior team, eventually enjoying an impressive 8 year stint which resulted in 216 appearances and 118 goals. A big money move to Real Madrid followed, with Michael going on to score over 160 times throughout his career. A hoard of personal and team accolades have helped propel Michael into the spotlight, establishing himself to be a popular football speaker and sports event attendee.

Sports speaker Michael Owen currently owns racehorses who have enjoyed successful careers as well, including a win at Royal Ascot in 2011. His punditry career with BT Sport and BBCs Match of the Day has ensured he is constantly in the spotlight, heightening his popularity as an after dinner speaker.

Articulate and coherent with his speeches, Owen has proven to be a sought after sports speaker and football speaker; thanks to his prolific career on both the domestic and international football stage, Owen has enjoyed much attention and affection from the British public, which again confirmed his superiority as an after dinner guest and popularity with the British public.

Within football circles, Michael Owen will always be regarded as one of the best strikers to have represented England. A model professional who has characterised the sport for many years with integrity, honesty and a true passion, Michael Owen is an excellent addition to any event as an after dinner speaker.
