Michael Owen shares his delight on Twitter at Liverpool ambassador appointment

The former striker has returned to the club as an ambassador.

Michael Owen has shared his delight on Twitter after he confirmed his return to former club Liverpool.

The retired striker has signed on to become the club’s first official international ambassador in a role that will see him represent the club at fan and commercial events worldwide.

It marks an interesting new chapter in Owen’s association with the Reds, who he enjoyed a fine career with during his playing days. 

Having come through the youth setup at the club, he notched 158 goals in 297 appearances across seven seasons, with his victory in the Ballon d’Or in 2001 a highlight.

He left for Real Madrid in 2004, and 12 years later was clearly delighted to return in his new non-playing role.

Now is certainly an excellent time for Owen to return to Liverpool, with things looking on the up at the club.

That comes from the positivity bred by Jurgen Klopp, as his side start to seriously impress on the pitch in the tail end of this season.

With a potential place in the Europa League finals up for grabs too, Owen, and Liverpool fans, may have a lot to celebrate in future.
