Wayne Rooney is "desperate" to win the Champions League this season and believes Manchester United blew their chance last term.

United looked good bets to conquer Europe after their 7-1 drubbing of tonight´s opponents Roma in the quarter-finals, only to be comprehensively outplayed by eventual winners AC Milan in the second leg of the semi-final.

Rooney already has his eyes on the main prize, saying: "I´m desperate to win the Champions League having got so close last year. We didn´t play the way we can in the semi-final and that cost us away against Milan. Hopefully we can go on and get to final this year."
