Michael Owen insists he has no regrets over his decision to join Manchester United.
The 31-year-old, who is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the season, has made just 39 appearances during his 18 months at United since arriving on a free transfer from Newcastle.
Sir Alex Ferguson insists Owen still has a future at United despite his lack of regular first-team action.
Owen, who is hoping to feature against his old club Liverpool in this weekend's pick of the FA Cup third-round ties, says he remains happy with his life at United.
"I knew when I came here that I wouldn't play every game and it would be a bit different to what I was used to," Owen told United Review.
"But I will sacrifice playing every game for the opportunity to play and train with the very top players and work under a top manager.
Loved"I haven't been disappointed at all by my time here. I have loved every minute.
"Obviously you always want to play and do your bit. And I feel as though I have scored a few goals when I've played.
"At Manchester United, though, the hard part isn't scoring goals on the pitch - it's getting onto the pitch in the first place.
"It's a new challenge for me and, in many ways, it's one of the appeals of being here."
