    It seems that the deep freeze and the snowy weather, dubbed “Black Ice Monday,” in the UK might have ruined the former footballer’s plans.

    Michael Owen got himself in trouble when he parked his Bentley under a tree to shelter it from the snow, thinking it was a good idea. In the morning he saw the tree on top of his car due to the weight of the snow-laden branches. Dangerous weather conditions caused disruption on roads and railways, thousands of airline passengers were trapped in various airports around the country after dozens of flights were canceled or delayed, and yet Owen still hoped to catch his train on time.

    His tweet set social media alight, as many followers tried to cheer him up or advised him to invest in a garage:

    Owen has reportedly made it to his train to London heading to work on coverage of the Champions League.
