Rooney determined to guide Man Utd to Europa League glory

Wayne Rooney insists he is gunning for the Europa League with Manchester United following their Champions League failure.

The reigning European runners-up missed out on the Round of 16 when they were bundled out by Swiss club FC Basel on the final group stage match-day and will now look to take out the second tier competition according to Rooney.

"Definitely," Rooney told the club's official website in a webchat with supporters when asked if he wants to win the Europa League.

"It's a shame we're out of the Champions League. That's what we all want to play in.

"Unfortunately we went out and now we turn our attention to the Premier League and Europa League.

"I don't think the manager's won the Europa League, so I'm sure he'll want to win it.

"Every competition we enter we want to win.

"There are some good teams but we have to believe, keep working and hopefully we can go on and win it."
