One is not enough says Manchester United ace

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney says he does not want to finish his career with just one Champions League winners medal to his name, reports Sky Sports.

United take on Greek champions Olympiakos tonight in the first leg of their last 16 clash, knowing a positive result in Piraeus will see them a step closer to another Quarter-Final.

The England striker has five Premier League title winners medals to his name, but has collected just one winners medal from the Champions League, despite appearing in three finals.

The only victory came six years ago in the famous penalty shootout victory over Chelsea, and Rooney admits the two final defeats to Barcelona that have followed since, still haunt him.

“One (Champions League) is never enough, especially at this club,” Rooney said.

“We need to keep trying to get into finals. The feeling you get when you win a trophy is incredible so you don’t want to stop at one. Obviously you want to win every year but that’s impossible.

“If we can go to final it’d be great for us. It would be an opportunity to win another trophy, so hopefully we can do that.

“I grew up all my life wanting to win trophies. That’s the main aim. That’s what you’ll be judged on when you finish your career.”

The 28-year-old admitted Manchester United have not performed well enough under David Moyes this season, and is hoping to end the season well in order to have a platform to build on for their next campaign.

“As a group of players we have to take responsibility for our league position,” he added.

“We know we’re better than that and we haven’t performed as well as we can do.

“We know that and it hurts. Now it’s important we finish the season strongly and take some momentum into next year, but more importantly get into fourth spot and do well in the Champions League.”
