Michael Owen has warned Tuesday night’s opponents Aldershot Town that Manchester United have their sights set on lifting the Carling Cup.
United travel to League Two side Aldershot in the fourth round of the Carling Cup, the Red Devils having won the competition twice in the last three years.
Owen is expected to play a part at the Recreation Ground and is eagerly anticipating the challenge of continuing United’s success on the Carling Cup stage.
He said: “It’s a competition we want to do well in. We’ve done quite well in the Carling Cup over the years and we want to progress and win a trophy. That’s the end game.
“It’s obviously going to be a massive game for Aldershot with Manchester United coming into town. I’m sure it’ll be a full house and we’re treating it as an important game as well.”
In the previous round against Leeds, manager Sir Alex Ferguson selected the likes of Owen, Dimitar Berbatov, Ryan Giggs, Michael Carrick, Antonio Valencia and Park Ji-sung.
