Benito Carbone tells the Bradford City squad that they must show plenty of passion when they come up against Swansea City in the League Cup final.

Former Bradford City striker Benito Carbone has told the club's current players that they will need to show "big heart" if they are to stand any chance of winning the League Cup at the expense of Swansea City on Sunday afternoon.

The League Two outfit have already knocked out Wigan Athletic, Arsenal and Aston Villa to set up their Wembley date.

Italian Carbone, who spent two seasons at Valley Parade, believes that the players will need to show a similar passion against the Swans to the one that they displayed in the earlier rounds.

"They have to play like they did in the other games, with big heart," Carbone told BBC Radio Leeds. "They have to do more than the other team in every part of the pitch and keep maximum concentration.

"I saw the games against Aston Villa and they played much better than them. They have nothing to lose now. I think Bradford can win, why not? It is the game of their lives."

Carbone is now the manager of Italian side Saint Christophe Valle D'Aosta.
