Tweets of the week

"Manchester United striker Michael Owen admits he has given up hope of being selected for England under Fabio Capello" -- Sky Sports flags a story on its website last week.

"Why are you making things up? Please show me the quote where I am supposed to have said that." -- Owen responds.

"Just because I don't expect to be picked doesn't mean I've given up. Another example of twisting words to get a good headline. -- Then responds some more.

"I do not wish to make any comment thank you. Would prefer it if you reported my quotes accurately at the outset." -- Owen's final word after Sky get in touch to offer him the chance to clarify matters.
