Michael Owen says he can offer more

Zeenews Sports Bureau

Manchester: Michael Owen insists he has a lot more to offer as a player to Manchester United despite making only four appearances for the club this season.

"My body feels as though it can play and my mind wants to and I think I still have another two or three years left. Some players are struggling to get out of bed and complain about their knees or Achilles. I never get pains like that,” he was quoted as saying by the Daily Star.

"It is probably strange to hear that because people know I am injured. But joint-wise, I feel great. I don`t think I am going to be one of those players who is still playing at 37 or 38, though," he added.

The 32 year old striker, who signed a two-year deal with the ‘Red Devils’ in 2009, has been sidelined since November due to a thigh strain. With the likes of Danny Welbeck joining Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez as regular members, it is all but certain that he might have to warm the benches more often than not.
