Wayne Rooney is targeting more silverware as he approaches the 10th anniversary of his Manchester United debut.

The England captain has scored 218 goals in 446 appearances for the Red Devils since joining the club from Everton a decade ago.

And the 28-year-old, who made his debut against Fenerbahce on 28 September 2004, is determined to help guide United to further success in the coming seasons under new boss Louis van Gaal.

“There have been some great moments in those 10 years,” Rooney told MUTV. “Winning trophies, winning Premier League titles and the Champions League – but it has gone quickly.

“I’m looking forward to adding more years to that and hopefully being as successful as we have been in the past.

“There are times when you don’t win things that you want to win but it’s how you react to it. That’s what we’ve always done well – we’ve reacted to the seasons where we haven’t been successful and went on to win the league or a cup after it.

“That’s what we have to do again now: move on from last season and try to make this season successful.

“Last year wasn’t good enough. As players, we let ourselves and the club down. We have to bounce back from that. We have to come out of that bad time and make United successful again.

“The plan is now that I have signed a new long-term deal at the club and hopefully in five years time I will be sat down doing a 15-year interview with [MUTV]. I don’t see any reason why not.”
