Meling would 'dream of himself as the King of Anfield'Michael Owen of Liverpool escapes tackles from Roy Keane and Jaap Stam of Manchester United (Image: Phil Cole /Allsport)

Nimes and Norway ace Birger Meling used to ‘dream himself as the king of Anfield with the number 10 of his back, the same as his hero Michael Owen’, according to a report.

Sport Witness cite L'Equipe has explaining how despite being small as a youngster, the left-back, who was with Middlesbrough's reserves between 2013-14, never gave up on his dream to reach the top.

Their article states:

Meling used to ‘dream himself as the king of Anfield with the number 10 of his back, the same as his hero Michael Owen’.

However, measuring 1m40 and weighing just 36kg at the time, that seemed a difficult task.

That’s when his father turned to an Old Trafford icon for his muse, and ‘inspired by the example of Paul Scholes at Manchester United’, persuaded his son, ‘then 17, to ask to go down a level with the U16s to find himself’.

His father said: “He suffered to be faced with so many obstacles and lose time. His response, and I admire him for that, was to work even harder. He never gave up”.

Wanting to be a forward at the time, Meling eventually moved to left-back, and while he did have that year at Middlesbrough, he quickly returned to Norway, where he forged a path for himself at both Stabæk and Rosenborg.

Then came the bigger move to Nîmes, where he has developed even more as a late bloomer.
