2016 Richest British Sportsmen Under 30: Wayne Rooney

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has revealed he wants to end the club’s barren run of trophies this season.

United are yet to win a trophy, barring the community shield in 2013, since SAF left in the 2012-13 season.

And with LVG’s men out of the UCL and the top contenders for the EPL, Rooney will like to win any other trophy.

Though Rooney accepts that closing the 12-point gap to leaders Leicester City looks unlikely, the United captain insists they must push for success in the FA Cup and Europa League in order to finish the campaign in positive fashion.

“The important thing this season is to win trophies again because it’s been a few years since we won a trophy,” he told BT Sport.

“It’s more or less a new team and we need to be successful. Obviously the Champions League is massive for the club and we’re disappointed to go out.

“It’s going to be tough to win the Premier League from the position we’re in now so I think our main aim is to get into that top four and it’d be great to win the Europa League. It wasn’t our aim at the start of the season but it’s where we are now.”
