Chelsea FC captain, John Terry, will miss Wednesday’s Champions League last-16 second leg against Paris St Germain at Stamford Bridge due to injury.
Diego Costa, Pedro and Kenedy were all involved in the team’s final training session before the game, but John Terry was absent as the 35-year-old central defender is still struggling with a hamstring problem that has kept him out of the last five matches.
Confirming the fears, Terry said on Instagram on Tuesday. “I’m gutted to be missing the PSG game.
“It’s so frustrating missing any game but these big Champions League nights at the Bridge are unbelievable and it hurts as a player not to be involved.
“I have thrown everything at my injury trying to get back fit but sometimes you have to let the injury settle. thankfully I’m on the mend and hope to be back soon.”
Diego Costa missed Saturday’s draw with Stoke because of a minor tendon injury, but he joined the group in training on Tuesday, as did Pedro who suffered a hamstring injury at Southampton.
John Terry and Kurt Zouma were the only absentees from the Chelsea first team squad.
PSG lead 2-1 from the first leg in Paris.
