In a rare example of a footballer displaying a sense of humour, former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves is about to launch a fitness channel on Youtube.
I do feel very sorry for Hargreaves. He is the latest in a long line a talented footballers who’s career has been constantly interrupted by injury. Another example was the talented German Sabastian Diesler who had to retire at the age of 27 after suffering several knee injuries and battled depression. The former Bayern Munich playmaker was never able to fulfill his potential.
Good luck to Hargreaves as he attempts to find a new club and regain his fitness. He was sorely missed by United, his ability to fill a range of roles and play the holding midfielder role could have made the difference in Man Utd’s bid to regain the Champions League title.
