Michael Owen: I have never dived for a penalty

The Stoke and England striker Michael Owen has tweeted to complain about headlines that he says has misled his comments about diving, saying he "feels a bit let down by the British press":


To have a headline saying: Owen 'I dived to win a penalty' is disgraceful.


To clarify, I have never won a penalty through diving and didn't say so yesterday, despite what the headlines say.


I have, however, gone down, WHEN FOULED, when I could have stayed on my feet.
