Diego Forlan has denied plans to retire at the end of the season, says Sky Sports.

The 34 year-old has said he was misquoted in a recent interview and has no plans to retire in the near future.

"There was a mistake in an interview," said Forlan.

"I want to make clear that I don't have retirement in mind from football, from my current team and from the Uruguayan national team."

The former Manchester United strike was award the golden ball at the 2010 World Cup but now struggles to get a place in the side for his club Internacional and his country.

His father, Pablo Forlan, continued to play for Uruguay until the age of 39. And son Diego wants to follow in his father's footsteps.

"I like to play in the same way as I did on the first day of my career," he added.

"I dream to play until the age of 40, similar to the way my father did. I am going to try and reach that objective."

Forlan could have the chance to add to his 104 international caps when Uruguay take on Jordan in a crucial World-Cup qualifying playoff.
