It’s the only thing I haven’t won, declares United star

first_img Wayne Rooney FA Cup despair 1 Wayne Rooney is desperate to win the FA Cup, the only domestic trophy absent in the England captain’s trophy cabinet.Losing two FA Cup finals, against Arsenal in 2005 and Chelsea in 2007, the Manchester United star says Monday night’s quarter-final against Arsenal is “massive”.United have the benefit of home advantage but the Gunners are in better form and are the defending champions.Rooney watched Everton lift the FA Cup in 1995 and the memories of that make him even more determined to match his old club’s achievement.He said: “We have an FA Cup quarter-final against Arsenal on Monday and that is massive for us.“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.“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.”last_img
