Tottenham defender Dawson: Gaffer determined to win FA Cup

Tottenham defender Michael Dawson says manager Andre Villas-Boas is determined to bring silverware to White Hart Lane.

Having been impressed by a pep talk by Villas-Boas at the start of the season, Dawson is convinced this could be the year he gets to lift a trophy with the north London club.

"We spoke to the gaffer at the start of the season and we said we want to win trophies, as players and as a team," the Tottenham skipper told Spurs TV Online.

"That's what you look back on at the end of your career. We have had two Wembley trips in the League Cup - one win and one loss. Wembley is a special place. To go up those steps and lift that cup would be special.

"And every player will say the same as me - the FA Cup is massive for us."
