John Terry has revealed even his own children "love" Lionel Messi as he insisted revenge was the last thing on his mind ahead of Chelsea's Champions League semi-final against Barcelona.
Terry's five-year-old twins, Georgie and Summer, have their own Messi shirts to go alongside their Blues strips, with the Barca star having become almost as much of a hero to them as their own father.
"My kids love him," Terry said. "It's a pleasure because when you finish and you look back - and the guy's still going to be going strong - you've tested yourself against the best. And, quite clearly for me, he's the best ever."
