Former England striker Michael Owen has no intention of retiring following his release by Manchester United.
Owen has announced that United will not be offering him a new contract when his current deal expires this summer, but he intends to play on.
Owen said: “At 32, I definitely owe it to myself to have two or three years and play a bit more — but for somebody else. When I wake up my body feels good even though I have had a few injuries.”
Owen insists he only wants to play on at top-flight level, whether at home or abroad.
He said: “I don’t think the Championship would be an option if I am totally honest. I don’t feel I have lost the ability to score goals or play at a high level.’’
