Rooney hungry for Champions League
Having signed a new multi million pound contract last week Wayne Rooney has now vowed he will not end his career with just one Champions League medal to his name, the Daily Starhas reported.
The Manchester United forward says the club are taking inspiration from the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea, who both won the trophy despite struggling in the Premier League. Both clubs finished outside the top four in those respective seasons, and United currently sit 11 points shy of fourth placed Liverpool.
Rooney said: “To win one is never enough, especially at this club. You need to keep trying to get into those finals. We want to win it.
“The feeling you get as a player when you win those finals is incredible so there’s no way you’d want to stop at one. I want to be remembered as a winner. I grew up all my life wanting to win trophies. That’s my main aim.”
United face Olympiakos in the last 16 of the Champions League tonight and Rooney hopes his and the form of fellow striker Robin Van Persie will see a positive result.
Rooney added: “We’ve both had injuries at the same time this season but hopefully we can stay fit now. Robin is a fantastic player - one of the best goal scorers in world football. When we are both playing we will score goals.”
