Owen's advice for Rooney

Wayne Rooney followed Michael Owen in becoming a teenage sensation in England's forward line - now he's emulating his team-mate again with a venture into racehorse ownership.

Owen recently welcomed Rooney and Tom Cleverley to his stables in leafy Cheshire, and invited MUTV's cameras to film the players' visit for an exclusive behind-the-scenes documentary. The Manchester United trio were also joined for the day by renowned racing broadcaster Derek "Tommo" Thompson.

To see what happened, watch Michael Owen's Stables on MUTV at 21:00 GMT this Sunday, 5 February.
