    Michael Owen: Could do media work


    Michael Owen has revealed he would look to stay in the Premier League if he was not kept on by Manchester United, as he wants to finish his playing career at the highest level.
    The 32-year-old striker will be out of contract in the summer and is waiting to see whether he remains a part of Sir Alex Ferguson's future plans.
    He has loved his time at Old Trafford since arriving in 2009 and has made it clear he would like to stay, but otherwise he would be keen on joining another top-flight club.

    While he hopes to carry on playing for another three years, Owen would prefer not to take up a challenge in a lower division and could then pursue other interests such as media work when he finally hangs up his boots.
    "As long as I'm wanted at a good level I will play on, but part of that is in my hands and part isn't. I'll wait to see what the manager says on that," he said.
    "If it happens, great, we'll talk about it. If not, I'll try to stay at a high level. I wouldn't drop out of the Premier League.
    "I want to stay at the top level or look at other markets, but I have four children and they're settled in school and that's something to weigh up.
    "There are a couple of possibilities when I've finished and media might interest me. Gary Neville is a breath of fresh air and has almost encouraged me to do it.

    "I get excited when it's half-time now because he's so intelligent and brings something new to it."
    Owen is currently working his way back from a thigh problem that has kept him on the sidelines since November.
    His fitness record has been a recurring topic of discussion over the past few years and Owen has identified an injury he suffered as a 19-year-old as the pivotal moment in his career, saying he would undoubtedly have become England's all-time leading scorer if he had stayed fit.
    The turning point Owen is recalling came at Elland Road in 1999 when he fell to the turf whilst playing for Liverpool with a badly damaged hamstring, something the striker says he has had to compensate for ever since.
    'You've got three hamstrings and one was just totally ruptured," he said.

    "It should be right the way down but one bit starts there, attaches there and the rest of it attaches there. I've got no hamstring in the middle. I'm basically running on two hamstrings on my right leg and three on the other.
    "That injury has probably changed my whole career. I've been compromised from the age of 19.
    "Every specialist says the same thing. It goes from one and then you compensate and it goes to the other one, and then to the groin, and then a double hernia and then on to this (his current thigh injury).
    "If I'd still been in one piece from the World Cup and gone through my career, what type of player would I have been? No doubt about it, if I hadn't had as many injuries I would have been the all-time leading scorer for England."

    Brad Friedel: 'I take football very seriously'


    Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel is not planning on retiring and wants to continue to play for as long as possible.
    The American turns 41 in May, but is only getting better with age after a series of impressive performances for the White Hart Lane club.
    Former Aston Villa player Friedel, an inspired free signing by Harry Redknapp last summer, could be forgiven for wanting to call it a day at the end of this season.
    But with the possibility of Tottenham returning to the Champions League in the next campaign, he plans to play on for as long as he is wanted.
    "How long can I play? Until no manager in the world wants to take me on," said Friedel, who at the end of next season would be 42 and a year short of John Burridge's Premier League age record, in The Times.

    "At 35, I probably would not have expected to be playing at 40. There is no secret [except to] eat well, [have] discipline and work hard.
    "I take football very seriously. I do my utmost to win, be as good as I can. I am very disappointed if I lose or make mistakes, but there is no sense in playing if you don't enjoy it."
    Friedel will be a part of the Tottenham team who on Saturday lunchtime kick-off at Sunderland and he wants to be sure there are no slip ups.
    Spurs are level on points with North London rivals Arsenal in their fight for third place in the league and the goalkeeper wants to put pressure on Arsene Wenger's side, who on Sunday host title-chasing Manchester City.

    "We will be disappointed if we don't qualify for the Champions League now," said Friedel.
    "If we do the business on Saturday, the pressure is on Arsenal, who have a really difficult game with City. We need to win. It will be like that for every fixture."

    Marouane Chamakh: Failing to shine for Arsenal


    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he is unsure if Marouane Chamakh will stay at the club next season.
    Chamakh is thought to have infuriated Wenger after he was pictured smoking a shisha pipe following last weekend's defeat to Queens Park Rangers.
    The 28-year-old's future at the Emirates has been the subject of speculation for some time, with the player struggling to hold down a regular place in Wenger's starting line-up.

    Chamakh, who has scored just one goal this season in 17 appearances, made his last start for the club in the FA Cup win over Leeds in January.
    Wenger has criticised Chamakh for his recent antics and refused to confirm whether or not the Morocco international would remain at the club next season.

    "It's (smoking shisha) not the best thing to do," said Wenger.
    "Will he stay at club next season? It's too early to say. We want him to focus completely - without smoking."

    Paul Ince: Wants Wolves job


    Paul Ince today declared that he is ready to return to Wolves as manager and lead a last-ditch attempt to avoid relegation from the Barclays Premier League.
    Former Wanderers captain Ince would be willing to take charge immediately were the club to relieve interim manager Terry Connor
    Ince spoke to Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey when the search for a new manager was still taking place - the day before Connor was appointed.
    But Wolves have taken only one point from six games since Connor replaced the sacked Mick McCarthy towards the end of February and are bottom of the table.
    Ex-England midfielder Ince, who has managed Macclesfield, MK Dons, Blackburn and Notts County, told the Express and Star: "When I spoke to Jez about the situation, he said the job was about experience, but a day later they appointed Terry.
    "With all due respect to TC (Connor), I've got more managerial experience than him. I've saved teams from relegation, I've got teams promoted and I've managed in the Premier League.

    "But the job at the moment is about motivating players and the fans and I feel I can do that. I feel I should be at the club now.
    "If someone said: 'Take it for the last seven games' I'd do it, because it's Wolves and they're my club and they're only going one way at the moment."
    Ince added: "Wolves is a massive club. I went there when they hadn't been in the top division for 19 years and we won promotion at the first attempt.
    "I played there for four years so Wolves is a massive part of my life.

    "If I went there, they'd have nothing to lose. I'd tell the players the hard facts and say: 'Everyone thinks you're going down anyway' and try to get something extra out of them."
    Ince was interviewed for the Wolves job in 2006 before the appointment of McCarthy.

    Emmanuel Adebayor: On loan at Tottenham


    Harry Redknapp does not know whether he will be allowed to keep Emmanuel Adebayor at Tottenham beyond the end of the season.
    When Adebayor arrived at White Hart Lane on loan from Manchester City last summer, there were serious doubts about his temperament, but he has defied the critics to become a key player for Spurs.
    The Togo striker has scored 14 goals and his physical presence up front has allowed the likes of Rafael van der Vaart, Gareth Bale and Luka Modric to prosper in midfield.
    The 28-year-old wants to stay at Tottenham, but his reported wage packet of £170,000 a week will prove to be a big stumbling block in any negotiations.

    Redknapp would love to keep the former Arsenal striker, but is unsure whether a deal can be agreed.
    The Tottenham manager said: "He scored two goals last week against Swansea and he has been excellent, but whether it's possible to do a deal, I wouldn't be sure.
    "Manu is on loan at the moment and that's where we're at.
    "The chairman will deal with (any negotiations) at the end of this season. I wouldn't have a clue whether (a permanent transfer) is a possibility or not."
    Critics have claimed that City, who now trail Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester United by five points, made a mistake in letting Adebayor go, despite his previous troubles with Blues boss Roberto Mancini.
    Reports claim some of City's players want Adebayor back at the Etihad Stadium next season, but Redknapp doubts that will happen.
    "His future doesn't seem to be there," Redknapp added. "He probably needs to move on.
    "City have just gone through a dicky little spell recently but they have lots of good strikers there.
    "If you look at the quality they have up front, they are full of top players."

    Adebayor's brace against Swansea last Sunday brought Tottenham their first win in six league matches.

    The victory, and Arsenal's defeat at QPR last Saturday, means Spurs have a chance to move three points clear of their north London rivals tomorrow if they win at Sunderland.
    Redknapp feels his team are now back to their best but has warned any slip-ups in their run-in could prove costly as Chelsea and Newcastle trail his team by just five points with seven games left.
    "Last week we had a good week, beating Bolton in the FA Cup and beating Swansea and drawing at Chelsea in the league, so we are in good form again," he said.

    "We can't afford to drop too many points, though, because Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle are all right there.
    "It will be a right dog fight until the end so we have to go up there and make sure we get the right result."
    Tottenham's poor away form is one of the main reasons why they dropped out of the title race at the turn of the year.
    Redknapp's men are without an away league win in 2012, their last victory on the road coming at Norwich on December 27.
    Tomorrow's game will not be an easy fixture given that Sunderland have impressed lately under Martin O'Neill, who has dragged the Wearside club from the relegation zone to ninth since taking over in December.

    "Martin has come in, and as Martin always does he has got them up and going straight away and has done a great job there," Redknapp said. "They are a difficult team to play against.
    "He is full of enthusiasm still and it's good to see him back in management again. He is a great character and a top manager.
    "They had a great result drawing at Manchester City last weekend and it will be a difficult game but we have to keep going."

    Jonathan Woodgate: Praise from Tony Pulis


    On the eve of Saturday's clash with Wolves, Stoke boss Tony Pulis appears poised to offer Jonathan Woodgate a new deal at the end of this season, even if the centre back fails to trigger a clause in his current contract.
    Woodgate signed for the Potters last summer on a free transfer from Tottenham eager to again resurrect his injury-hit career.
    City took no chances on the 32-year-old centre-back, handing him only a one-year deal, but with the guarantee of an extension should he make a certain number of appearances.
    With 21 matches behind him for Stoke, Woodgate needs to play in just three more games to assure himself of a place in the squad for next season.
    However, after only recently returning from a month out with a calf problem, the former England international has just seven matches to hit his magic tally.
    Pulis, though, has indicated Woodgate, who has already made it clear he wants to stay, has seemingly done enough to earn himself the contract extension anyway.

    "If he doesn't get the games in that doesn't mean we aren't going to offer him a new contract," said Pulis.
    "Woody has been brilliant, playing in a lot more games than people probably thought he could play, and he's good to have around.
    "He's been very good for (Ryan) Shawcross and (Robert) Huth in lots of respects.
    "So let's get the season out of the way and then we'll sit down and discuss everything with (chairman) Peter (Coates) and the family."
    One player definitely heading for the exit is veteran midfielder Salif Diao who has spurned the offer of a coaching role and working with the academy as from next season.
    The 35-year-old, who has made 89 appearances in more than five years after joining on a free from Liverpool in January 2007, is convinced he can earn another playing contract elsewhere.

    "We'd love to keep Salif because he is a fantastic lad," added Pulis.
    "We'd love to have him involved in the academy. There's a lot of money being spent on that over the next couple of years.
    "I want to get certain players involved, those who have been the bedrock of this club over the last six and a half years, and one of those is Sal.
    "But he wants to continue playing. He feels as though he is fit enough to do that, which is his decision and I respect it.
    "So I'll be very sad to see him go. He was one of the signings that set this club in place, and he's been a credit to himself, his family and the game ever since he has been here."
    Pulis, meanwhile, has indicated he could again be in the market for another striker this summer given the lack of goals this year.
    Ahead of Saturday's visit of relegation-haunted Wolves to the Britannia Stadium, where Stoke are seeking the three points they need to take them over the 40-point barrier, City currently boast the worst goalscoring record in the top flight.

    Alongside Wigan, Stoke have managed to find the net just 29 times in their 31 games, despite spending £8million on Kenwyne Jones in August 2010 and £10million on Peter Crouch last summer.
    "We've created good opportunities, but the final pass or delivery from crosses has not been as good as you would like it to be," said Pulis.
    "It's disappointing in some respects, but we need goals from all around the team rather than thinking of the two strikers, as well as Robert and Ryan. We need to get more goals from other areas.
    "So I'm always looking to strengthen, to improve the team. As soon as I stop doing that then they should start looking for a new manager."
    Pulis has doubts over three players for Saturday in defender Andy Wilkinson (groin) and wingers Matthew Etherington and Jermaine Pennant (both ankle).

    Harry Redknapp: Remains the overwhelming favourite


    The Football Association have no intention of being railroaded into approaching candidates for the vacant England job before they are ready.
    It is now almost two months since Fabio Capello's shock resignation following a dispute over the FA's treatment of John Terry.
    Stuart Pearce took over as an interim measure for the friendly defeat to Holland at the end of February but with time ticking down to Euro 2012, there has still been no move made to find Capello's replacement.
    Harry Redknapp remains the overwhelming favourite, with Roy Hodgson also believed to be meriting consideration, although others are also likely to come into the frame.

    However, Press Association Sport understands there have been no moves as yet and there has been no indication when that situation will change.
    The four-man Club England board, FA chairman David Bernstein, chief executive Alex Horne, director of football development Sir Trevor Brooking and Club England managing director Adrian Bevington, have held private discussions on the matter and are sticking to the rather loose timeline of "back end of the season" for a final decision to be made.
    That could be any point from now onwards, so speculation about approaches being made within a fortnight, may not be wide of the mark.
    Certainly, the Club England board are not confined by the widespread theory that they will wait until the domestic season reaches its conclusion on May 13 and there is a distinct possibility it will be done by then.

    In addition, it has been pointed out whilst Pearce remains a back-up option, the preference remains to have a permanent manager in place for the two pre-tournament friendlies, in Norway on May 26 and against Belgium at Wembley seven days later.
    "The message remains the same. No-one has been spoken to and no-one has been approached," said an FA spokesman.
    "We are quite happy with where we are."

    Grant Hanley: Praised by Sir Alex Ferguson


    Blackburn boss Steve Kean has warned Sir Alex Ferguson off making a move for Rovers defender Grant Hanley.
    Hanley is thought to have impressed Manchester United manager Ferguson during his side's 2-0 win over Rovers at Ewood Park on Monday night.
    The 20-year-old has established himself as a regular in Kean's side this term, forming a solid central defensive partnership with Scott Dann.
    Kean revealed Ferguson spoke highly of Hanley after Monday's game, but he has told the Old Trafford supremo not to make a move for the young Scot.
    "He was very complimentary about Grant," Kean told The Sun.

    "He thinks he's good enough to play for Scotland for the next 10 to 15 years, and I agree.
    "I hope Fergie's not going to be putting a bid in. I said that to him.
    "I told him leave it a bit longer because Grant is only just starting with us."

    Yohan Cabaye: Wants to play in Europe


    Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye has revealed he plans to stay at the club for a long time.
    The Frenchman has been a revelation for the Magpies since arriving from Lille last summer and has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.
    Cabaye is thought to be attracting interest from a number of clubs following his exploits this season in the North East.
    However, Cabaye insists he is happy on Tyneside and is determined to help his side qualify for Europe next season.
    "My goal is to play in Europe again - either the Europa League or Champions League," he told The Times.

    "Newcastle United is on a good way to get that, so I don't really want to change where I am if I can achieve that here.
    "I would like to play in both Europa League and Champions League - Champions League will be more difficult, but there are seven games, you never know. I would just like to play in Europe.
    "My other aim is to play in the European Championships with France, which I can do if I'm playing here.

    "I managed to play in the Champions League with my home town Lille, but it is the same situation here. We need to build a big team - if each year someone else leaves the club it's going to be difficult. It is really, really important to keep the players to build a big team.
    "I love playing in England, I'm thankful to Newcastle United for giving me the chance to play here. My family feel good here and I would like to stay here for a long time."

    Sone Aluko: Rayo Vallecano transfer target


    Rangers forward Sone Aluko has hinted he would be willing to sit down and discuss a new deal at Ibrox.
    Aluko is out of contract in the summer after signing a short-term deal upon his arrival last November.
    The Nigerian has impressed for Rangers and his performances have not gone unnoticed by clubs elsewhere.
    Spanish side Rayo Vallecano have already held talks with Aluko's agents about a move, while a number of clubs in England are also thought to be keeping tabs on his situation.
    Gers boss Ally McCoist is keen to keep hold of the 23-year-old and Aluko admits he will make a decision on his future once Rangers sort out their financial problems

    "We'll see what happens next," Aluko told the Daily Record.
    "There are a lot of things going on at the club but it will get to the point where I will sit down with them and take it from there.
    "It is not something I am looking at right now.
    "I am concentrating on playing and winning games for Rangers and carrying on my good form. That is my only focus just now.
    "We are all dependant on the situation and what happens, so once the club figures out what the next step is I will decide as well."
