The 42-year-old retired from football in 2013 after a career blighted with injuries. He was destined to become one of the finest forwards the country had ever seen before injuries scythed his potential.
Owen still won the Ballon D’or, football’s most prestigious individual award for the best player over a calendar year, in 2001 after leading Liverpool to a treble. He also scored 40 goals in 89 matches for England, and featured for Real Madrid and Newcastle United in between his spells with the two behemoth clubs in the North-West.
What Is Michael Owen’s Net Worth?
As of 2022, Michael Owen has an estimated net worth of $68 million (£54.4 million), according to Idol Net Worth.
Owen owns a £4m mansion in Wales, where he has his Ballon D’or trophy displayed for all to see - where he lives with wife Louise Bonsall and daughter Gemma.
He is a regular commentator, pundit and analyst on BT Sport since retirement, and particularly enjoys horses, an interest he shares with his daughter.
She competes internationally in Dressage for Great Britain, and has aspirations of becoming a billionaire in the future to dispel the ‘living off Daddy’s money’ stereotype.
Gemma owns her own swimwear brand, and has now become a regular face on our TV screens on popular reality TV show Love Island, in which she has been coupled up with Davide Sanclimenti in great controversy.
Owen gave his daughter the blessing to go on the ITV show, which airs at 9pm each weekday and Sunday.
