& # 39; Come on, & # 39; she said, & # 39; we can all squeeze it in. & # 39;
& # 39; I obeyed and took off my hat thinking about the right etiquette.
& # 39; If you put your hat back on, & # 39; she said, voice raised, & # 39; we may all fit in! & # 39;
& # 39; I put on my hat sheepishly. I was ashamed. To this day, I have absolutely no idea if she was joking.

But he also reveals how his love of horse racing helped persuade Sir Alex Ferguson to sign him for Manchester United in 2009.
& # 39; Of course I knew him because of our shared interest and connections in horse racing, so we probably spent more time talking about racing than football in that first meeting, & # 39; Owen remembers.
& # 39; Strangely enough, I don't think he ever immediately said he wanted to sign me. It was just adopted on both sides. I left knowing that I probably wanted to be a Manchester United player. & # 39;
