Rooney: Of course I believe we can go through

Ahead of tomorrow night’s Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich, with United taking a 1-1 draw from the first leg, Wayne Rooney has said he believes we can go through.

“We believe we can go through, we believe we have good enough players,” Wayne said during an interview with “It will be tough because, for me, Bayern and Barcelona are probably the two best teams in the competition. We have to be at our best, we have to be focused and prepare well. We are ready. It is an exciting game for us, for the fans… it’s a massive game to be involved in.”

Asked if he believes in United’s Champions League chances, Rooney says: “Of course I do. I think we have to. We have seen in the past with so many different teams. Everyone has their favourites each year – Bayern or Barcelona – but it doesn’t always happen. For instance, when Chelsea won it in 2012, I think they nearly went out three times.”

Last week it was reported that Rooney would miss the game with a toe injury although now it is looking more likely that he will play. Rooney trained ahead of today’s game and is obviously hugely keen to be involved tomorrow. David Moyes has insisted that United won’t do anything medically wrong to allow Rooney to play but the striker is happy to take an injection so that he is available.
