Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that he is “desperate” to win the Carabao Cup this season.
Pochettino was speaking after his team thrashed Middlesbrough 6-1 in their semi-final second leg on Tuesday night.
The Blues will now face Fulham or Liverpool in next month’s Wembley final.
Pochettino, who was appointed as Chelsea head coach last summer, failed to win a trophy over five-and-a-half years at Tottenham, losing both the 2015 Carabao Cup final and 2019 Champions League final with the club.
But the ex-Paris Saint-Germain boss is eager to break his trophyless run in England.
“I am desperate to win a title here. There is your headline! We won three trophies in Paris in 18 months and we want to win here. I am desperate to win of course.
“Fulham or Liverpool are two amazing teams, so it will be difficult, but now is the moment to believe we can win. It’s an important step for us,” Pochettino said
