Michael Owen insists he has no intention of retiring following his release by Manchester United.
The 32-year-old is leaving Old Trafford this summer after being informed he would not be getting a new deal when his current one expires.
Former Liverpool and Newcastle striker Owen has rejected suggestions he could retire and is determined to find himself a new club to continue his career.
"I am only 32. I might look a bit older than that but obviously looking at the likes of Scholesy and Giggsy it doesn't half fill you with a lot of motivation and confidence that they are playing into their mid-to-late thirties and I still feel as if I am reasonably young," Owen told Sky Sports News.
"When I wake up my body feels good even though I have had a few injuries. I don't wake up with sore joints or anything like that.
"At 32 I definitely owe it to myself to still have two or three years and hopefully play a bit more for somebody else."
