Huddersfield v Nottingham Forest: What was said?

Huddersfield boss Carlos Corberan: “We knew having the right mentality and character was going to be important if we were to reach Wembley.

“First of all I have to congratulate the players and I’m looking forward to the final.

“Nothing makes me prouder than seeing how happy they are and how much they identify with the team.

“We will rest in the next few days and then we will start working for this game.”

“I cannot summarize at the moment, the reality is that we still have a step to take.
