Arsène Wenger will not be satisfied if Arsenal win the Carling Cup because he wants more than that from this season.

Sunday’s Final presents the first opportunity for Wenger to win a trophy since 2005 but, with Arsenal still in the hunt for the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup, the manager is eager to strive for further success.

“For me to be satisfied I must feel that the team must go as far as it can,” said Wenger. “Why should we limit our ambition at the end of February?

“We don't want to win this trophy and then consider the season over. The real quality of the players and me is to go as far as we can. If we don't win the Carling Cup we will continue for the rest.  

“That time has come for us. I think so because we are close in every competition to have a chance of winning and this Cup is the closest one. You reassure yourself when you know you can do things.”
