Michael Owen v. Newcastle United

Former Newcastle co-owner Freddy Shepherd said in the Daily Express: “We might have been a poor team, but we made him a rich man. It works out at around £500,000 for every game in a Newcastle shirt. Poor? Well, he wasn’t poorer for it. He spent more time ferrying between Cheshire and Tyneside in his £3.5 million helicopter.”

Newcastle’s managing director, Derek Llambias, added: “Under Kevin Keegan’s management he was offered a one-year extension at £140,000 a week, which he did not take. He was already on £133,000. His time here cost £40-odd million, about £1.3 million per goal.”
