Michael Owen suffers hilarious malfunction live on BT Sport

It wasn’t a good afternoon on air for the pundit.

MICHAEL OWEN WAS a guest on BT Sport’s ‘Fletch and Sav’ show this morning before Stoke City’s imposing win over Manchester City.

The former England striker is a regular on the programme before taking up his position with Jake Humphrey pitchside or in the commentary gantry for the broadcaster’s Premier League offering.

So regular viewers will have become accustomed to Owen’s insightful analysis and colourful commentary – and he was at it again at the Britannia Stadium.

The topic of conversation was Gary Neville’s appointment as Valencia manager and Owen, who played with Neville at Man United, attempted to articulate his thoughts…

But not to be deterred by that severe malfunction on live television, Owen, like the professional he is, soldiered on to deliver the most insightful piece of post-match analysis we’ve heard in a very long time.

In case you missed that, Owen’s ground-breaking theory on Man City’s failings:

“When they don’t score, they hardly ever win.”

Poor Michael, he wasn’t having a good day.

Earlier in the show, presenter Jake Humphrey asked Owen how Mark Hughes could bring the Potters to the next level. After the former Stoke striker gave a detailed breakdown of what the club now needs, Humphrey interjected with:

“A few years ago, they thought they’d signed an international quality striker…It wasn’t to be.”

A bad day at the office, all told.
