Roberto Di Matteo insisted John Terry could still be held up as Chelsea's "leader" as the club's tarnished captain prepared to skipper the Blues in their Champions League clash against Shakhtar Donetsk

The match comes one game into his now-infamous four-match domestic suspension. Terry will captain the side after Chelsea controversially refused to strip him of the honour over the language he used towards Anton Ferdinand.

Di Matteo said: "He has realised that he used language that was inappropriate and he has apologised for that and has certainly learned from that issue. And with good performances and good behaviour in the future he should still be looked upon as the leader for our club."
