Petrov: Wembley Biggest Game Ever

Petrov: Wembley Biggest Game Ever

Stiliyan Petrov has described today as his biggest club game ever, having already tasted Scottish League and Cup success as well as a UEFA Cup Final.

Speaking on the Official Site ahead of the crunch Carling Cup Final Petrov believes that the Wembley experience will be greater than anything he's ever tasted before, and he's determined to help bring the silverware back for Martin O'Neill and the fans.

'This is a massive game for the players, the fans, the whole club. We want to win.'

Petrov has pretty much been Monny's right hand man all his playing career linking up first at Celtic before following the wee manager down to B6 and he knows the disappointment that losing in such a game be.

'When Celtic lost to Porto people said it must have been nice just to be there. It wasn't.'

But today isn't just about our experienced players adding another feather to their cap, nor even really us grabbing some real silverware for the first time in years, although it must said I think personally the Carling Cup and the FA Cup this year would look brilliant next to the Peace Cup (especially as we had our youngsters out and Juve were taking it seriously!), Petrov realises this and thinks a win today could set the club up for years to come with success with the younger lads we have:

'It's very important for development, it will be the biggest game of their life and they will be remembered for days like this.'

Adding that if we can take the Trophy home, it will make them hungry for far more success and that could make the difference in future Cup runs and more importantly our league campaigns as we battle for a Top 4 spot.

Captain Petrov finishes by praising those under his charge, commenting that a lot of the players have matured over the past few years and the camp know that whilst they have to enjoy ever minute of it, there's no need to be scared, or tense about the occasion - they simply have to handle the pressure and be relaxed. Play our game and play to our strengths.

'We have so much talent here and we need to show it in the final.'

Anybody nervous yet?

Nervous yes... If we lose, then we'll be losing to a great team. If we win, then we'll have deserved it and will show that our team as Petrov hints, is definitely maturing. Irrespective of today's result, it will give them a good taste of reaching a final and strengthen them mentally.
