Terry rules himself out of PSG clash

08 March 2016, 21:05

London - Chelsea captain John Terry will miss Wednesday's Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain at Stamford Bridge due to a hamstring injury, he announced on Tuesday.

"I'm gutted to be missing the PSG game," Terry wrote on his Instagram account.

"It's so frustrating missing any game, but these big Champions League nights at the Bridge are unbelievable and it hurts as a player not to be involved.

"I have thrown everything at my injury trying to get back fit, but sometimes you have to let the injury settle, and thankfully I'm on the mend and hope to be back soon."

Terry, 35, sustained a hamstring injury during his side's 5-1 Premier League win over Newcastle United on February 13 and has not featured since.

He did not take part in Tuesday's group training session at Chelsea's Cobham training base and was reported to be working alone in a bid to prove his fitness.

With Kurt Zouma sidelined by a serious knee injury, Chelsea have lined up with Branislav Ivanovic and Gary Cahill at centre-back in recent matches.

Striker Diego Costa did take part in training, having missed Saturday's 1-1 draw at home to Stoke City as a precaution due to a minor tendon problem.

Kenedy and Pedro Rodriguez, who have been troubled by groin and hamstring problems respectively, were also present.

PSG lead 2-1 ahead of the second leg of the last 16 tie, which represents the third season in succession that the teams have met in the Champions League knockout phase.

Chelsea beat PSG on away goals in the 2013-14 quarter-finals, but the French champions claimed their revenge in the last 16 last season via the same method.
