In 2012, John Terry famously donned the full Chelsea kit before lifting the Champions League trophy for despite being banned; three years later and Nemanja Matic did just the same.

You wouldn’t have guessed that Matic had spent the entire 90 minutes in the stand, as he dashed to the changing rooms on the final whistle.

"Matic made the speech in the dressing room expressing his pain not to be playing, and asking the players to express the pleasure he couldn't have to play this final," said his manager, Jose Mourinho.

It turns out he was not required as a Terry strike followed by a Kyle Walker own goal gave Matic the chance to express all the pleasure in the world…in his full kit.

Matic has been almost ever-present for Chelsea this season, missing only one game all year and is a major reason for the team's success.

The Serbian is also clearly a far more popular figure than his club captain, having received not even a modicum of the mockery endured by Terry following the success over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.

Terry missed out on that famous night having been sent off against Barcelona in the semi-final, but that did not prevent him from lifting the trophy along with Frank Lampard in his traditional Chelsea blue.

It was the ultimate 'full kit w****r' moment.

Would you do the same as Terry and Matic have done? Give us your thoughts below!
