Obafemi: Owen Is Our Danger
The Nigerian hitman’s Wolfsburg side face Manchester United at Old Trafford.
And he said: “Owen is a dangerous player – he can score player – he can score from anywhere in the box.
“For me he is still a great player and I just hope he won’t be in form when we play against him in the Champions League.”
Martins, 24, also admitted he was relieved to quit relegated Newcastle in a £9million summer switch to resurrect his European dream.
He said: “I was very happy when the move was completed because Wolfsburg are a team that is on the up with a good group of players.
“Plus, I didn’t really want to play in the Championship after experiencing the Premier League.”
Martins claimed many Magpies stars did not give their all to make sure the club avoided the drop and he revealed Newcastle’s docs messed up a hernia op that hit his form.
He added: “In the last season I was injured and I had surgery. They did not do it right. Other players were injured as well and that’s why we really went down.
“For me we also didn’t try enough to avoid relegation.”
