Owen Reveals Why He Refused Socialising With David Beckham While They Both Played In Real Madrid
Footballer, Michael Owen has revealed the reason he didn’t socialize with David Beckham when the pair were team-mates at Real Madrid.
Beckham arrived at the Bernabeu in Spain in 2003 after a row with Sir Alex Ferguson.
Owen then joined the La Liga giants from Liverpool for £8million in 2004.
Owen and Beckham had been England team-mates for some time, so many expected them to form a close bond as two of the only Englishmen playing in Spain, but Owen says that was not the case.
Owen in his new autobiography, Reboot, stated that he and Beckham rarely had much contact away from the football pitch though he and his wife, Louise and their daughter lived close to the Beckhams.
Owen said: “As much as we ended up living close to David and Victoria Beckham and were two English families living abroad in the same city, there wasn’t much in the way of social life as far as them and us were concerned.
“Given that both Louise and Victoria were quite lonely and both looking after young kids, they’d occasionally see each other while we were training. That was the extent of the friendship, however.
