Wayne Rooney has taken to social media to reveal his excitement ahead of Manchester United’s Champions League clash with CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils head into their European clash looking to build on their 3-0 win at Everton in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Louis van Gaal’s men completed their final training session on Tuesday morning ahead of their trip to Russia.

And Rooney was clearly looking forward to Wednesday’s clash as the Red Devils jetted off to Moscow.

Rooney shared the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Training done now off to Moscow for our @uefachampionsleague game tomorrow ⚽️🏆

It was on 21 October 2009 that the clubs met for the first time in Moscow, where United’s Antonio Valencia scored the only goal after 86 minutes.
