Top pundit makes mega Liverpool gaffe live on TV

There’s an audible hush here in the Transfer Tavern every time Michael Owen speaks, with the BT Sport pundit known for making gaffes live on the telly so often that our punters don’t want to miss his latest gem.

And last night the former Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle, Manchester United and Stoke striker did it again when talking about the Europa League by claiming that the Reds WON the competition last season. As we all know, Jurgen Klopp’s men made it to the final and were in the lead against Sevilla in Switzerland, but a second-half collapse saw them lose 3-1 to the Spaniards.

In fairness to Owen, he was making an argument about how hard it is to win the competition given the quality of teams involved, so Liverpool’s fate in the tournament was not the salient point of his speech, but hey, it was still funny!
