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.

That might have led to speculation that the 32-year-old could quit the game after three injury-ravaged years at Old Trafford but he intends to play on, and told Sky Sports News: "At 32, I definitely owe it to myself to have two or three years and play a bit more - but for somebody else."
