Swansea City skipper Garry Monk says winning the Capital One Cup would be the best moment of his career.
The centre back, who is hoping to get picked ahead of Kyle Bartley to play alongside Ashley Williams at Wembley on Sunday, is looking for the team to bounce back from last weekend's 5-0 defeat away at Liverpool.
And if they did bounce back to lift the cup, Monk told the Evening Post that it'll be lifted by both himself and fellow captain Ashley Williams.
'Ash and I have already said that whatever happens, if I wasn't playing or somehow Ash wasn't playing, that if we do win then we will both lift the cup together,'
'It's a good thing. I haven't played as much as I have wanted this season and Ash has been captain throughout all of that so it's important he is there because he has had as much influence as I have had as captain.
'I know Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs both did it when Manchester United won the Champions League. I know Ash likes to think he is Rio so I'll be Giggsy then! I'll take that.'
Despite the heavy defeat at Anfield last Sunday, Monk insists the team will go to Wembley full of confidence, adding:
'I'm always hopeful I'll play. It's what I play football for. I want to play games,'
'It's a big occasion for both clubs. The journey both clubs have been on — not just in this competition but in recent history — means the game is vitally important. Both teams will want to win as much as each other.
'We will go there full of confidence and approach it in the way we know we can. We have to give everything we have and hopefully our quality will come out on top.
'The experience of the Reading game should help. Even though the team has changed quite a bit, a few of us in the squad have experienced the arena and what it is going to be like. It will be good going there knowing what to expect.
'But Bradford have beaten three Premier League teams on the way so there are definitely no mugs. They will be fighting and scrapping as much as we are.'
