‘Hungry to win the title again’

Wayne Rooney has said he is committed to bringing the glory days back to Old Trafford and he hopes this will be the year he wins his second Champions League with Manchester United.

The striker ended speculation regarding his future last week when he signed a new deal with Manchester United last week and is now hungry for another Champions League winner’s medal.

“You always want to win it,” Rooney told a press conference in Piraeus ahead of United’s last-16 first-leg game with Olympiakos.

“One is never enough, especially at this club. I’m hungry to win the title again. You have to keep trying to get into the final when you are at this club.

“The feeling you get when you win it is incredible, so there is no way that you want to stop. If we can go to the final then it would be great for us. It would be an opportunity to win another trophy, and hopefully we can do that.”

Although Olympiakos are one of the weaker teams in the competition, United are still outsiders to reach the final in Lisbon on May 24.

They sit 11 points off fourth place in the Premier League with 11 games to go, but Rooney still thinks it would be foolish to write off United’s chances of winning it this term. “The year Chelsea won it, they nearly went out of the competition about three times,” the United striker said.
