In an interview with Premier League Productions, via GiveMeSport, Owen, alongside former Arsenal striker Ian Wright, deliberated his side.
Goalkeeper: Peter Schmeichel
A commanding ‘keeper, Schmeichel was one of the first names on Sir Alex Ferguson’s teamsheet as he helped United to all those titles in the late 1990s.
Owen on Schmeichel: “Peter Schmeichel for me. He backs it up with trophies. He was involved in the greatest team of that generation.
He had presence, size, he was commanding. He drove that team forward. I think he’s a standout.”
