Manchester United striker Michael Owen is eager for more Champions League action with the competition kicking off next week.

Owen, who has plenty of experience in Europe, is hoping to play his part in the Champions League programme as United aim to top Group C, which kicks off on September 14.

"I can't wait," he enthused to Inside United. "The beauty of playing for a club like Manchester United is that you have a good chance of winning every competition you take part in.

"You're expected to win as well, which is good pressure to have placed on you. This year will be no different.

"We have to forget what happened last year - and we would have done that even if we'd beaten Barcelona - and start again. We have some great memories from last year's competition, even though it ended disappointingly.

"Now we start again and the aim is to win the competition."
