London, Sep.15 (ANI): Manchester United coach Sir Alex Ferguson has reportedly told striker Michael Owen to get used to life on the bench.

Manager Alex Ferguson insists Dimitar Berbatov is first choice in attack alongside Wayne Rooney.

He said: "Owen will play, just maybe not early in the season. We are trying to get a blend of Berbatov and Rooney - so Owen doesn't come in to the equation. I explained to Owen why he has not been involved. The season has not really started. Because of the internationals we're not really playing Saturday and Wednesday."

According to The Sun, Owen is desperate to impress England boss Fabio Capello to win back his England place. But he has started just one United match since joining for free this summer. (ANI)
