Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney says that wants more than one Champions League win, saying it's not "enough" for him,  according to the BBC.

Manchester United take on  Olympiakos in the first leg of their Champions League tie against the Greek champions.

Rooney said: "One is never enough, especially at this club. We need to keep trying to get into finals."

Rooney has appeared in three finals for United, getting his hands on the trophy in 2008 when the Red Devils beat Chelsea in Moscow on penalties. The forward also played in the 2009 and 2011 finals against Barcelona.

Manchester United progressed from their group with minimal difficulty and will be hoping to continue their good form against Olympiakos. The draw was favourable to United as they avoided some of the bigger names left in the competition such as Barcelona, Bayern Munich and PSG.

Manager David Moyes will be hoping that Manchester United can take their current good form in Europe and build on it in the league. With automatic qualification looking less unlikely with Liverpool hanging onto the last place, United may need to win this year's competition to feature next time round.

Rooney is hoping that this squad will be able to do so. He added: "The feeling you get when you win a trophy is incredible so you don't want to stop at one.

"If we can go to the final it'd be great for us. It would be an opportunity to win another trophy, so hopefully we can do that. I grew up all my life wanting to win trophies. That's the main aim. That's what you'll be judged on when you finish your career."
