Terry's CL ban reduced

Published Add your comment

Chelsea captain John Terry will be able to play from the start of the Blues' Champions League campaign after having his three-match ban reduced on appeal by UEFA.

The England defender was sent off in last season's semi-final second leg against Barcelona in the Nou Camp for an off-the-ball clash with Alexis Sanchez.

The offence saw Terry handed an automatic three-match suspension for violent conduct - the first game of which was the final against Bayern Munich, where the Blues won the europe's top prize for the first time after a dramatic penalty shoot-out. However, UEFA have partially upheld Terry's subsequent appeal.
