Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has told lfc.tv
Johnson said: “ It would mean the world [to go back]. That’s what football is about – getting to finals and winning these trophies. That’s what it’s all about, that’s what we work hard for day in, day out.”
The penalty shootout victory over Cardiff City confirmed Liverpool’s record-breaking eighth League Cup triumph and first since 2003, when Manchester United were defeated 2-0 through goals from Steven Gerrard and Michael Owen, the latter ironically now a United player. Gerrard opened the scoring in the 39th minute while Owen sealed the trophy with a second four minutes from time.
Liverpool also won the League Cup in 2001, 1995 and every year between 1981 and 1984. Johnson may yet get his wish as Liverpool remain in the FA Cup and host Stoke City in the sixth round on March 18. Should the Merseyside club be victorious they would be through to a semi-final to be held at Wembley, with the final also taking place at the national stadium.
