Former Arsenal player William Gallas feels his previous manager Arsene Wenger was wrong to underestimate the value of winning domestic cup competitions.
Wenger opined after the AGM that it is imperative for a big club to remain in the Champions League, and thereby finishing in the top four is more important that winning domestic cups, like the Capital One Cup.
Gallas believes winning silverware gives a fantastic feel and hopes to win something with Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season.
“For me, a trophy is something you lift at the end of the season and I know it’s a fantastic feeling,” said Gallas while speaking to Sky Sports.
“It doesn’t happen many times through your career, so for me to finish second or fourth isn’t the same as finishing top, as champions. It’s completely different.
“You feel different because you are the best team – the best player. You are so happy to lift a trophy – it’s the real thing to do.
“It is a long time since Tottenham have lifted a trophy and I don’t know which one we are going to lift.
“But for sure we want to lift one – any one will be pretty good so we will wait and see.”
Arsenal will face Reading in their next Capital One Cup tie on Tuesday at the Madejski Stadium while Spurs will face Premier League strugglers Norwich City.
