Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney believes that the Red Devils can manage to come up with an upset on Wednesday against favourites Bayern Munich in their quarter-final fixture in the Champions League.

"Everyone has their favourites every year - the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich - but it does not always happen," he told uefa.com.
"When Chelsea won it [in 2012] they nearly went out of the competition three times."
"We believe we can go through. We have good enough players."
"It will be tough because in my opinion Bayern and Barcelona are the two best teams left in the competition, so we have to be at our best."
"We are ready. It's an exciting game for us all - the players and the fans - and it's a massive game to be involved in."
Meanwhile, The Telegraph reported that Rooney was spotted in training today at Carrington after being temporarily sidelined because of a toe injury which he sustained in the first-leg against Bayern that ended in a 1-1 draw.
