Owen rejects retirement claims and plans for Man Utd future

Manchester United striker Michael Owen has rubbished claims he is set to retire and believes he can continue playing for much for longer, The Sun reports.

The ex-England international is drawing to a close in his long-standing career, but has not finished yet and believes that he has a few more years left in him before he has to hang up his boots: “I am 31, so I’d like to think I’ve got a few years left in me. When you look at players like Giggsy who are playing into their mid to late 30s, that is great for us all and I’d like to think I’ve got a few years left in me.

“I love the game and how can’t you love it when you are playing for such a side as Manchester United?”

Owen is behind Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck in the United squad.
