Derek McInnes has opened up on the Aberdeen target he wants to achieve before he departs Pittodrie.
The Dons boss has been in the North-East for some time now, managing the Pittodrie club since 2013. In that time he has won one trophy, the League Cup in 2014.
Now he’s targeting more silverware before his Aberdeen exit. McInnes told BT Sport 1 prior to the match against Celtic (12:05, 27/10/19): “For me, everything that I want can still be here.
“I want to make sure that there’s more than one trophy so that when I do eventually leave Aberdeen I don’t want that (the League Cup) to be the only trophy that we’ve won.
“We’ve all got an obligation to drive this club forward, and while we’re here, we’ll continue to do that.”
McInnes still has Aberdeen ambition
After a 4-0 hammering by Celtic, the last thing Aberdeen are thinking about right now are cup runs. The pressure is very much on McInnes after a gruelling match against the Hoops.
In terms of the cups, Aberdeen have had their chances to win trophies. They’ve been to three cup finals since their League Cup triumph and numerous semi-finals too.
Celtic have triumphed over them in each of their Hampden showpieces. Despite spending a lengthy amount of time at Pittodrie, it seems as if McInnes has a burning desire to take the club ‘forward.’
Even amidst the fan pressure he’s under, McInnes will continue to work towards his big aim of delivering silverware to the Pittodrie trophy cabinet.
