Wayne Rooney: 'Winning FA Cup would be massive'

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney admits that winning this season's FA Cup would be "massive" from both a team and individual perspective.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has admitted that he is desperate to add the FA Cup to his trophy cabinet.

The competition continues to elude Rooney, who has already won the Premier League, Champions League and League Cup, and the United and England skipper has acknowledged that Monday's quarter-final with Arsenal is a "massive" encounter.

The 29-year-old told the Manchester Evening News: "The quarter-final against Arsenal on Monday is massive for us. 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."

Rooney has scored 11 times in 27 matches in all competitions during the current campaign.
