The word 'quit' is, in fact, associated with two United strikers in The Sun - the other being Javier Hernandez. The paper takes quotes from our feature on Chicharito's rise, in which his father Javier senior says: "He doubted himself. He doubted he was capable of playing in the First Division."
Other quotes from Michael Owen - following a personal appearance for BT - include an update on his fitness. The Reds' number seven was shaping to face Wolves in the Carling Cup but says he "had a setback in training" with "a different muscle injury and some damage to my hamstring." Owen expects to be out for a few weeks. (Mirror)
If that makes Owen doubtful for the Manchester derby on 10 November, he's not the only one... City's former Reds striker Carlos Tevez has reportedly flown home to Argentina to "rehab a leg injury." (Mirror)
