Huddlestone hoping to see his old rivals fail.
Hull City midfielder and former Tottenham Hotspur star Tom Huddlestone says that he hopes Arsenal win nothing again this season.
Huddlestone’s side face the Gunners in the FA Cup final on May 17 after they beat Sheffield United 5-3 in the semi-final on Sunday.
With the north Londoners out of the Champions League and off the pace in the Premier League title race, the Wembley Stadium clash will be their only chance this campaign to end what is approaching a nine-year trophy drought.
Yet Hull are in unprecedented territory having never reached the FA Cup final before and will take heart from Wigan Athletic’s shock victory against Manchester City last year.
Therefore it’s understandable Huddlestone is keen for Arsene Wenger’s side to end up with no silverware once again, which is exacerbated by the midfielder’s Spurs allegiance.
“It would be nice to stop them from winning anything again,” the 27-year-old was quoted by the Guardian.
The Hull ace has only ever won the League Cup in his career to date and adding another major title to his CV would be a great achievement.
Steve Bruce’s men have enjoyed a solid return to the top flight, as they are almost certain to avoid relegation and have of course enjoyed this fine cup run.
If the former Manchester United captain guides them to glory at Wembley then it will be the first time in their history they won a major trophy.
