Jose Mourinho keen to go on and win the Carabao Cup with Tottenham

Speaking ahead of our Premier League clash against Manchester City (h/t The Mirror), veteran boss Jose Mourinho is aiming to win the Carabao Cup with Tottenham.

The Spurs manager has the opportunity to end the club’s 13-year wait for silverware when they take on the same opponents in the final on 25th April. City, however, are one of the best sides in Europe and will provide us with a healthy challenge.

Mourinho also touched upon the difficulty involved in usurping a team such as City. After all, Spurs are not bankrolled by Sheikhs who can splash the cash without thought. The boss, however, knew what he was getting into and claims the club did all they can to give him the tools last summer.

“The club made the possible efforts in the summer to improve the team and I’m not complaining with anything, I just do my work the best I can and that’s it.”

Mourinho also went on to add that he has no time to waste celebrating a runner-up medal. It would appear that he has his sights set on Carabao Cup glory, with Spurs potentially set to be the third different side he leads to the trophy.

“If you tell me if you lose the final, what are you going to do with your silver medal … I am going to say: first of all, I think I am going to win the final and, secondly, if you want my silver medal I give to you because I don’t want to keep it.”

The Spurs boss also defended the club’s marketing department for putting out merchandise that celebrated them reaching the Wembley showpiece.

Guardiola and Mourinho have a long and intense rivalry

Mourinho, however, understands the merchandising team’s job is to make money and they are doing just that. He will however refrain from purchasing anything from the collection.

“I imagine their job is to try and make money, right? If you ask me if am I going to buy anything, I am not going to buy anything.”

The Jose Mourinho-Pep Guardiola rivalry has gone somewhat quiet in recent years. The match should, however, serve as a dress rehearsal for the April showpiece. City go into the game as league leaders and beating them will send out a statement that Tottenham still have much to offer this season.
