He wants to follow in the footsteps of fellow Argentines Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa by leading Southampton to FA Cup glory.
Saints face Yeovil Town today and Pochettino said: "The FA Cup is a competition that is talked about all over the world.
"I remember as a young boy watching Ardiles and Villa winning it and making my country proud.
"I have enjoyed my first taste of the FA Cup this season and want to be successful in it both individually and collectively.
"I know that Southampton have won the trophy once before and have made the final on other occasions too so that is something for our team to aspire to this season.
"A good run in this competition will not only lift the competition for places in the squad, but also help generate a winning formula that will help our league form."
