Rooney: We're already best in Europe

Wayne Rooney insists Manchester United would be worthy winners of the Champions League because of their proud record in the competition this season.

The England striker points to the team's unbeaten run as to proof they are the best in Europe.

Rooney's theory will be put to the test in Moscow a week on Wednesday when Chelsea provide the opposition in the competition's first all-English final.

United will approach the clash with onfidence after clinching the Premier League title following yesterday's 2-0 victory against Wigan.

With Barcelona and Roma among their victims in the Champions League, Rooney cannot wait for the showdown in Moscow.

He said: 'Winning the Champions League would be a great achievement, unbelievable. It is a very difficult trophy to win but we are the only unbeaten team in the competition.

'That record speaks for itself and we have played some great football in Europe this season. Some people said we did not express ourselves enough against Barcelona but we knew we had a job to do and we got to the final.

'We want to go there and win it as well as the league. I feel we can do it.'

Rooney paid tribute to Ryan Giggs and cited the Welsh winger as a shining example to all young players.

Giggs marked a record-equalling 758th appearance for United by scoring the crucial second goal at Wigan.

Cristiano Ronaldo had made the breakthrough from the penalty spot to take his tally for the season to a remarkable 41.

Rooney said: 'It's an unbelievable achievement by Giggsy and a perfect moment for him to score.

'I don't think anyone will ever win 10 titles like he has done. He deserves it. Today, more players move around clubs but Giggsy has shown his commitment and loyalty to Manchester United.

'He is a great example for all young players.'

Rooney, who has weighed in with 18 goals this season, was delighted with the way United retained their title.

He had missed the previous two games with a hip problem and said: 'To win it on the last day makes it even better.

'We did the job at Wigan and deserved a victory. It is a brilliant feeling.'
