Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is fully focused on helping the club to win the Europa League and finish in the Premier League's top four.

Rooney, whose chances this season have also been limited by an ankle problem, said when asked about speculation over his future: "I think I answered that question in February.

"My focus at the minute is to help us try and reach the Europa League final and hopefully win it and to try and make sure we finish in the top four. That's my aim, that's my focus at the minute and that's what I'll do until the end of the season."

Rooney added: "I think that (the speculation) has happened over the last few years. All I can do is keep working, keep trying to - not prove myself, but prove people wrong."
