Michael Owen hasn’t won any fans since the day he decided to try out his hand in football punditry. The former Liverpool star has had some embarrassing moments in his role as a football commentator, and he has become a joke of sorts among the football fans.
He was given the responsibility of commentating during BT Sport’s coverage of the Champions League match between Chelsea and PSG, and once again lived up to his reputation.
A number of viewers reacted in a predictable manner: by venting their frustration on Twitter.

Have you noticed that every game Michael Owen commentates on he says, “there’s more goals left in this game.” Every single time!!!!

Michael Owen is a man with no redeeming features. An imitation of life. A personality shaped vacuum. The colour beige in human form. #nufc

Michael Owen’s technical analysis of each foul is extremely illuminating. ‘He’s just caught him there’.

“He shouldn’t have been offside” says Michael Owen.
Correct. It is against the rules to be offside.

Captain obvious Michael Owen says the next goal is vital. Just in case any of you weren’t sure.

Michael Owen says if Diego Costa was onside, the defenders wouldn’t have known he was there. Yet he’d have been in front of them. Sweet.

“I said that Chelsea aren’t out of this and now they’re right back in it!” Premium Michael Owen, there.

What nonsense from Michael Owen: “These foreign refs don’t like high boots.” It’s in the world-wide rules under dangerous play
