Michael Owen Credits Karim Benzema With Helping Man Utd Move

The former Reds striker became one of the handful of players to cross the divide between Anfield and Manchester United when he made the move in 2009 by way of Real Madrid and has been consistently drawing the air of Liverpool fans ever since.

A two-time Champions League victor with Porto and Inter, Mourinho moved to Real Madrid in 2010 to try to bring La Decime to the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I've got a lot to thank [Benzema] for, he might not know. When you talk about things then it is better".

Benzema was not happy, and speaking in a documentary called "LeKBenzema" broadcast on French TV, he said: "We always had a good relationship, but after that, there were expressions and statements that were not necessarily well intended". "It felt that he though they were amusing and the truth is that if he was someone that I respected, then in that moment I lost my cool".

Benzema admitted he met Mourinho for a one-on-one discussion in which he said: "I'm a football player, you're my manager, I respect you, respect me as a player".

"I'm shy but if you make fun of me, I'll be straight".

"Following that there were no further stories about cats, dogs or anything else".
