Vilahamn wants to use FA Cup final defeat as ´beginning´ for Tottenham Women

SoccerNews in General Soccer News 12 May 2024


Tottenham Women manager Robert Vilahamn believes his side will use their FA Cup final defeat to start something special, rather than ending their good work.

Spurs were hammered 4-0 by Manchester United Women in Sunday’s Wembley Stadium showpiece as Ella Toone and Rachel Williams were on target before Lucia Garcia’s second-half double.

Vilahamn’s side failed to manage a shot on target but the Spurs boss suggested his team will catch up to the women’s elite clubs.

“The main thing I said was this is not the end, it is the beginning,” Vilahamn said.

“We still have a gap between us and the top teams but that’s normal. We are closing the gap but we haven’t closed the gap yet.”

Tottenham finished sixth in the Women’s Super League as well as reaching this final, their first FA Cup showpiece appearance in their short history.

Vilahamn wants his Spurs players to use this defeat as motivation going forward.

“If you take away the feelings right now, you need to look at these players doing some incredible things this year,” he said.

“We are at Wembley playing in front of our fans and they are actually enjoying it and staying, and supporting us after.

“We got a good experience today and we are learning how to play at Wembley more times. We need to look at it that way because the players are amazing.”
