Rooney: One is not enough

Wayne Rooney says it is not enough to win just one UEFA Champions League and the United striker is determined to go all the way this season.

Rooney lifted the trophy in 2008 following a dramatic penalty shoot-out victory over Chelsea at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow and has since gone close to doubling his medals tally, having lost in the 2009 and 2011 finals to Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona. 

On the eve of United’s round of 16 match with Olympiacos, who are top of the Greek Super League and unbeaten all season, the 28-year-old England star explained why the taste of continental success has left him hungry for more. 

“You always want to win,” Wayne told reporters at the Karaiskakis Stadium. “One is never enough, especially at this club. You have to keep trying to get into those finals. The feeling you get when you win the trophy is incredible. 

"There's no way you want to stop at one. You want to win every year. That's impossible, but if we can get to the final that will be great. It's an opportunity to win another trophy. Hopefully we can do that.”

Having sailed through Group A by picking up 14 points from a possible 18 - finishing comfortably ahead of Bayer Leverkusen, Shakhtar Donetsk and Real Sociedad – Rooney feels United should be confident in the knockout stages.
