Wayne Rooney is happy with how his first season as Manchester United’s captain went after being appointed by Louis van Gaal.

After finishing as the teams top scorer in 2014/2015, Rooney reflected on the campaign that saw Man United get back into the Champions League after a year’s absence.

Rooney reiterated his delight at being back in Europe’s premier club competition while speaking about his individual performance this year.

“I think my form’s been good,” he said.

“I’ve played in a few different positions and scored a few goals, but I could probably have scored more.” After netting 14 goals in all competitions Rooney continued his quest to become United’s all-time leading goal scorer.

The striker also confessed just how much being given the club captaincy meant to him.

He added: “It was a huge honour to be given the captaincy, it was something I really wanted to do and hopefully I can be successful. There was no silverware for us this season, but it was really important that we got back in the Champions League, which we managed to do.”

The skipper has already turned his attentions to next year where United will look to go onto bigger and better things. “Next season the focus will be on winning some silverware and I hope I can lead the team to doing that.”

After two consecutive seasons without a major trophy, United fans and players alike are desperate for silverware. Rooney and manager Louis Van Gaal have both stated their desire to win the Premier League next year and you have to feel that another trophyless season may be one too many.
