Tottenham boss Pochettino: FA Cup not enough for this team

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says winning the FA Cup won't be enough for his team.

The Spurs chief is closing in on his first silverware as a boss as he prepares to face Manchester United at Wembley tonight on the semifinal.

Pochettino, 46, said: "It's fantastic if Southampton, Chelsea, Manchester United or Tottenham will win the FA Cup. Is it going to change our life? I don't believe, I don't believe.

"Who needs it more? I don't know. We are going to try and fight to win, but it is not about need or not need, it's about a title that would be fantastic to finish the season, play in the final and win trophy.

"At the end it would be fantastic the finish the season with a trophy I don't think it's about need or not need.

"Every press conference you ask. Always my answer is yes I agree and if we are capable to win the Premier League and the Champions League it is a moment you say the team has improved and reached the next level.

"Until that, win the FA Cup or the League Cup, it will be fantastic for our fans but is not going to move the club to a different level. That is my opinion. Some people respect it, some people don't. I respect all opinions.

"I want to play to win the Premier League and Champions League . It is my vision, I want to play to win the Premier League, I want to win the Champions League."
