Manchester United striker Michael Owen insists this season will be no swansong.

Owen struck twice in United's 3-0 win at Leeds United.

"I believe I've got a few years left in me and I'd love it to be at Man United.

"For that to happen I've got to be involved because the manager wouldn't want me sitting round and I wouldn't want to sit round if I wasn't part of the squad or part of things.

"As we stand now we've been playing four or five weeks of the season. We've only had one game a week so he hasn't rotated anyone really.

"You could count all the players out there today and not many of them have had much action so hopefully now the season is under way and we're playing twice a week the whole squad and not just me will get more of a chance."
