Rooney eyes Arsenal win

06 March 2015, 17:50

London - Wayne Rooney is hoping to finally get his hands on the FA Cup this season as Manchester United prepare to face Arsenal in the quarter-finals on Monday.

The United and England captain has won Premier League titles, the League Cup and the Champions League in his career but the FA Cup has so far eluded him.

"We have an FA Cup quarter-final against Arsenal on Monday and that is massive for us," said Rooney, who saw his boyhood favourites Everton win the trophy back in 1995 by defeating United in the final.

"We haven't been to a final for a few years, we want to try to win that game and we are looking forward to that.

"Of course, I think it is a massive trophy. It is a trophy that, growing up as a youngster, I used to love watching and I was fortunate enough to see Everton lift the FA Cup in 1995 when I was nine years old.

"It is something which I would love to do and hopefully it can be this year."

The 29-year-old has twice been on the losing side in the final, forming part of the team that lost on penalties to Arsenal in 2005 and then featuring in the 2007 final defeat to Chelsea.
