Former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho is on the brink of claiming his fourth League Cup title as his Manchester United takes on Southampton in the final on Sunday.
Should United win on Sunday, Mourinho will match Sir Alex Ferguson and Brian Clough by claiming the League Cup for a fourth time as a manager.
Speaking ahead of the match, Mourinho said he agreed with Ferguson’s belief that any trophy will mean a positive year.
“I don’t think that’s changed,” Mourinho said. “It’s so difficult to win trophies in England and in some countries it’s really easy when you are in the right clubs.”
Asked if the chance to match the record mark added any pressure, Mourinho said: “I’m not nervous. I’ve had many years in football, many finals — I want to play. I want to win, I want to feel responsibility, be focused on the game. It’s not one more game, it’s always a special match.”
“I’ll go for dinner with all my assistants. We’re in a positive way, we’re together and we start now being together and focused on the game. It’s not one more game, it’s always a special match.”
Mou won his previous three League Cup titles with Chelsea.
