"I’ve played in two FA Cup Finals and both have ended up in defeat," said Rooney. "It’s a cup I haven’t been lucky enough to win yet, so it’s a good chance for us.”
"I’m sure it’ll be a tough game but I think the fans deserve it - they’ve got to come to Wembley for a Cup Final, and we have to give them a good performance,” added Rooney. "I think it’s a great opportunity for us. There are a lot of young and new players in the dressing room so it could be a big day for us in The Final and the start of something special, I hope."
Thirty-year-old Rooney impressed in his new midfield position last week setting up a first-half goal with Marouane Fellaini and a stoppage-time strike from Anthony Martial. He was asked what he thinks of playing in the midfield rather as center striker.
"I think you’re obviously more involved in the game, you have a bigger influence from that position," said Roo. "I’ve tried to play what I’ve seen and I think it worked, with me and Michael Carrick having a bit more experience in there.
"We helped calm the game down when we needed to, especially after the equaliser, so I enjoyed it,” continued Rooney. "I think the amount of games I’ve played - I know I’m still 30 - I try to help them and try and enjoy my football, which I’m doing."
