Juande Ramos has revealed what his last words will be to the lads before the Carling Cup Final against Chelsea.

"I will tell the lads to go out and enjoy the game, enjoy the atmosphere and the occasion. Most importantly is to go out and win the game. And then we will hope we return again soon."

A relaxed, smiling Juande was speaking to the media at Spurs Lodge on Friday, ahead of the big one against Chelsea at Wembley.

Asked what he'd done to change things in his short reign so far, Head Coach Juande said: "If there is one thing we can take credit for it's convincing the players that they can give a lot more of themselves and that they will see it when the results start to come in. To convince the players that they have the capacity and capability to do more than they are doing."

It's a theory that stands for Sunday's showpiece on the biggest football stage of all. "Above all, we have to convince the players that they are not inferior to Chelsea," added Juande.

"It's a game of 90 minutes, 11 against 11 and they have the possibility to win the game. If we play scared, we could lose the game because of that. It's up to us to convince the players they can win the game.

"It was the same at Sevilla when we played Real Madrid or Barcelona. We never felt inferior, we had that mentality so we ended up winning those games and winning trophies. We'll be doing everything possible to win this trophy."
