Commentator Michael Owen gets mauled on Twitter during Liverpool v Blackburn [Best Tweets]

Ex Premier League striker Michael Owen has become a regular pundit on BT Sport, albeit not to the delight of their paying customers.

The former Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle, Manchester United and Stoke City hitman was on commentating duties for Liverpool’s quarter final FA Cup clash with Blackburn on Sunday evening.

The FA Cup is Liverpool’s only chance to win a trophy this season and it would be a great way for Steven Gerrard to bow out before his summer move to the MLS.

Now aged 35, former Liverpool youngster Michael Owen really seems to be enjoying his new career on TV… even if no one else is!

The game ended 0-0 between Liverpool and Blackburn and one of the biggest talking points online was Mr. Owen and his boring, monotonous commentary.

Not for the first time, Twitter took aim at Michael Owen as the England international trended throughout the game.
