Owen Hargreaves tryouts on Youtube
Release by Manchester United at the end of the year, Owen Hargreaves has posted on Youtube a few videos of his off-season training to prove his fitness. Playing a handful of games during the last 3 seasons, clubs looking for defensive midfielder are doubtful over his fitness and potential injuries.
This Web 2.0 strategy seems to work as Sven-Goran Eriksson, Leicester Manager in English Championship, has shown interest in the 30 years old England international.
”I saw his videos,” Eriksson was quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror. “And if he wants to come here I will open the door and stand and wait for him in the door.
”He’s been very unlucky in recent years, but if he’s close to what he was, he is a fantastic football player. I haven’t spoken to him for a while – maybe I should.
“It’s difficult to know what he wants to do when he’s been away for a long time.”
