Disgruntled Liverpool fans have started an online petition to get Michael Owen sacked from his role at the club.

In 2015, the Merseyside club announced that former striker Owen would act as Liverpool's international ambassador, "engaging with fans around the world and representing the club at the fan and commercial events."

But now, 400 days later, Kop fans are calling for him to let go after he referred to Manchester United, one of his other former clubs, during their Europa League win over Ajax.

The petition aimed to collect 15,000 signatures, but has already achieved over 18,000. In the description, the creators of the campaign said:

"Michael Owen has been a disgrace towards his position as Liverpool's International Ambassador and he must be stripped from the position immediately.

'Whoever decided to make him ambassador should also take a look at themselves.

"Michael Owen openly supports rivals and shows zero respect to Liverpool, until it suits him. On Wednesday night during the Europa League final, live on BT Sport, Michael Owen referred to Man Utd as "We".

"As Liverpool ambassador Liverpool supporters did not take this well and that was the final straw. The club and supporters deserve someone who will give 100% to the club and the only "we" should be when referring to the club paying you."
