Cup win could trigger Reds success


The German manager could win his first silverware in England if Liverpool beat Manchester City in Sunday's final and it was Chelsea's 3-2 win over the Anfield side in 2005 that set Mourinho on course to become the club's most decorated manager.

“I remember for Chelsea a few years back, it was the League Cup they won (in Mourinho's first season) and after that, they managed to win a lot of trophies,” Belgian international Mignolet told Sky Sports.

Mourinho won three Premier League titles, an FA Cup and the League Cup twice more in his two spells at Stamford Bridge and if Klopp's team were to prevail at Wembley on Sunday, it would end Liverpool's four-year wait for silverware.

The Merseyside club's last major honour was the League Cup they won under Kenny Dalglish in 2012.

“It gives everybody a confidence boost when you win your first trophy for a long time,” Mignolet added.

“For this young group of lads, I think it could be something that pushes us on to be even hungrier for trophies.” – Reuters
