Man Utd striker Owen: I want to be fit for final five games

Manchester United striker Michael Owen is working towards playing in the final games of the season.

The 32-year-old is closing in on full fitness again after finally battling back from a thigh injury he sustained at the beginning of November.

"I have to get myself to a stage where I could be available for the last four or five matches," Owen said.

"To a certain extent that would be my job done. If I am available, should we get an injury or need a goal in the last 10 minutes then I am there and the manager knows I have a track record that suggests I can do something.

"Whether I play or not is the manager's decision but I can get myself into that position."
