Manchester City's Caballero hails 'amazing' Capital One Cup final win

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner breaks down the fallout of the League Cup final for Manchester City and Liverpool.

Goalkeeper Willy Caballero welled up on the Wembley turf after winning the Capital One Cup for Manchester City.

The Argentinian's place in City's starting line-up came under scrutiny after some unconvincing performances in the competition, with regular stopper Joe Hart waiting in the wings.

But boss Manuel Pellegrini stuck by Caballero for the final and was repaid as the 34-year-old saved three shoot-out penalties for a 3-1 win after the tie had ended 1-1 after extra-time.

"It's amazing, to win this cup, for me it's amazing," said a tearful Caballero on Sky Sports. "It was a hard week for me but we had a talk that we could do it. It is fantastic for the blue people.

"It's important, emotional for me, my family, to be in this great team. It is a first trophy for me and for my family in Argentina."

Willy Caballero says his intuition got him through Sunday's penalty shootout.

On his saves, he added: "I tried to see all the penalties last night, but my intuition got me through."

Captain Vincent Kompany added: "It's not the best way [to win], it's the most unfair way.

"There was so much emotion in this final, we were having so many chances and missing so many. We left everything out on the pitch.

"We have got experience, we looked around ourselves, we found a moment of peace and calm and kept doing what we were doing. They were playing well but we were creating chances."
