Manchester United star Wayne Rooney believes the Premier League is still the most important trophy to win.

Rooney, who has won five Premier League titles at Old Trafford, believes winning a domestic trophy is the hardest trophy to win due to the fact that the outcome is determined over 38 games.

Last season's Premier League champions Manchester United are currently five points off early pacesetters Arsenal - but are slowly starting to worm their way back into the title race.

And Rooney has revealed he would rather add to his Premier League medal collection than win a second Champions League title.

Speaking to Manchester United's official website, Rooney said: "I’ve always said throughout my career that the most important trophy in any season in the Premier League.

"It’s your domestic league and it decides who is the best team over the course of a season. That’s the one that it is vital we try to win."

Rooney, who is likely to feature in England's friendly against Chile tonight, will be hoping he can continue his outstanding partnership with Robin van Persie and fire the Red Devils to their 14th Premier League title.

The 28-year-old, who has scored seven goals for United this season, is likely to be involved in his side's next Premier League match against Cardiff City on November 24.
