Mauricio Pochettino Eager for Maiden English Trophy as Chelsea Secures Spot in Carabao Cup Final

Mauricio Pochettino expresses his strong desire to clinch his first English football trophy after successfully molding a Chelsea team that has risen from a “nearly zero” starting point, guiding them to the Carabao Cup final.

Chelsea’s resounding 6-1 victory against Championship side Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge, overturning a 1-0 first-leg deficit, secured their place in the final with a 6-2 aggregate win. The Blues are set to face either Liverpool or Fulham at Wembley on February 25, marking their first cup final appearance since the 2022 EFL Cup and FA Cup losses to Liverpool on penalties.

Pochettino, yet to claim a trophy in England, reflects on his past experiences, reaching the final of this competition with Tottenham in 2015 and the Champions League final with the same team in 2019. He expresses his eagerness to secure a title with Chelsea, emphasizing his desperation for victory.

Acknowledging the challenges faced at Chelsea, including injuries and the incorporation of numerous young players, Pochettino praises the team’s resilience and commitment. Despite the club’s focus on major trophies like the Champions League and Premier League, he emphasizes the significance of reaching the final and building a new team in the process.
