Cole targets FA Cup win as season consolation

Ashley Cole admits it would be unacceptable for Chelsea not to win the FA Cup this season, but knows that even success in the world's oldest cup competition will not make up for a disappointing season.

Having been knocked out of the Champions League in the semi-finals by Barcelona and with a third place finish likely in the Premier League Chelsea take on Everton in the final at Wembley on May 30 knowing it is their last remaining hope for a trophy this term.

Although Cole's disappointment at defeat in Europe and failing to keep pace with Manchester United remains, he has turned his sights to becoming the first player in the modern era to win the FA Cup five times.

''Winning the FA Cup for the fifth time would be a big achievement in my life,'' Cole, who lifted the famous cup in 2002, 2003 and 2005 with Arsenal and with Chelsea in 2007, told The Sun.

''I wouldn't say winning the FA Cup would make it a terrific season because we're all still disappointed that we're out of the Champions League,'' added Cole.

''But hopefully the Cup final will be a decent end to the season. A club like Chelsea has to win silverware.''

The final is set to be interim boss Guus Hiddink's last game in charge of Chelsea.

Cole said: ''Everyone wants Guus to stay but I doubt it will happen. But in the few months he's been our manager, everyone has shown a lot of desire and fight for him because we all enjoy playing for him so much.''
