“Don’t judge me solely on titles,” Mauricio Pochettino emphasizes ahead of Carabao Cup final

By Majesty 3 Min Read

Chelsea fans are expected to wait for their first domestic trophy in six years, but manager Mauricio Pochettino has implored them not to judge him based just on “winning titles.”

Chelsea has won four foreign titles since their last domestic trophy, the FA Cup in 2018.

After stints at Southampton and Tottenham, Pochettino, who took over at Stamford Bridge last summer, has the opportunity to earn his first award in England.

“That is not how I would evaluate a coaching staff,” the Argentinean stated.

“It’s about winning and competing, but there are too many influencing factors.

“I don’t think [winning on Sunday] will improve our standing with the fans or my popularity.”

Pochettino supported his argument with the example of Jurgen Klopp, claiming that the Liverpool manager’s reputation remained unaffected despite having to wait nearly four years to win his first trophy at Anfield.

Being at the right place at the right time with a team that believes in you, equipped with the means and accountability to succeed, is what matters.

Liverpool, on the other hand, hopes to win the first of up to four trophies this season going into Sunday’s final.

The Reds have a four-point lead in the Premier League and advanced to the FA Cup fifth round and the Europa League last 16.

This is a replay of the 2022 FA Cup final and the Carabao Cup final, which Liverpool won on penalties.

Alexis Mac Allister, an international player for Argentina, said, “This is my first final with Liverpool so it’s going to be something very special for me and the team.”

“After winning the World Cup, I realised how much I wanted to win more trophies, and this Sunday is a great chance to do so.” That’s what I signed up for the team to do.

On the first day of play, Chelsea and Liverpool drew 1-1 at home. However, at the end of the previous month, Chelsea lost 4-1 at Anfield when Nunez missed a penalty kick after Benoit Badiashile was found to have fouled Diogo Jota.

Wolves defeated them 4-2 at home after that defeat.
