Owen wants to play out career at Man Utd

Michael Owen would like to end his career as a Manchester United player.

The England striker is confident of having a big impact at Old Trafford this season.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "I'd love this to be my last club. You look at Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville and you like to think you have five more years in the game.

"I'm 30, and I don't want to wish my career away.

"In an ideal world I'd like to play out my years here. I had great moments last season - a hat-trick in the Champions League and a goal in the Carling Cup Final, but the derby goal was fantastic.

"It was one of the biggest, most pure adrenaline rushes of my career. It's alongside that Germany hat-trick, scoring twice in the FA Cup Final, and that goal in St Etienne.

"I was fit for 43 games. The pity is I missed the ones at the end when we were playing for things. The amount of injuries I have had is exaggerated.

"It can be annoying, but you learn to live with it."
