Terry knows value of Champions League

Published Add your comment

John Terry has admitted it is vital to Chelsea's future for them to qualify for next season's Champions League.

The Blues are in real danger of failing to earn a place in Europe's premier club competition for the first time in the Roman Abramovich era. They lie fifth in the Barclays Premier League, while they are favourites to crash out of this season's Champions League on Wednesday night when they play Napoli in their last-16 second leg.

Captain Terry acknowledged that Chelsea could ill afford to spend a year outside Europe's elite if they are to continue to attract top players and adhere to UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations. He said: "We need Champions League football financially, and also to attract the best players. So we need to be in the competition next season."
