England legend, Michael Owen has come out to blast those saying Bukayo Saka was too young to handle the pressure of a penalty at Euro 2020 final. He recently revealed that that theory is absolute nonsense and it needs to stop.
According to him, he doesn’t see 19 years of age as too young for footballers to take responsibility, because if experiences are anything to go by, it is easier being young.
Owen added that young, fearless, and confident players are ready for big challenges once they believe they are.
His words, “So much to debate following #EURO2020 but I simply can’t have this “too young at 19” theory to take a penalty,”
“In fact, if my experiences are anything to go by it’s easier being young!”
“Fearless, confident, no previous scars etc.”
“Just checked the ages of players who’ve missed at major tournaments since Italia 90; Pearce 28 Waddle 29 Southgate 25 Batty 29 Ince 30 Beckham 29 Vassell 24 Carragher 28 Gerrard 26 Lampard 28 Young 27 Cole 32 As I thought, the theory is absolute b*llocks.”
