Chelsea captain John Terry has confirmed he will miss tonight’s Champions League meeting with Paris St Germain through injury.
The 35-year-old defender has missed the last five matches with a hamstring problem he sustained in the 5-1 win over Newcastle on February 13.
Terry took part in training two days later but then did not travel to Paris for the first leg of a last-16 European tie, which Chelsea lost 2-1.
The skipper missed the 15 minutes of Tuesday’s session which was accessible to the media and later took to Instagram to share his disappointment at being absent for the game.
“I’m gutted to be missing the PSG game,” Terry wrote. “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.”
Striker Diego Costa was present after missing last Saturday’s draw with Stoke as a precaution due to a minor tendon problem. Kenedy (groin) and Pedro (hamstring) also took part.
Radamel Falcao, absent since October with a thigh problem, trained, but the striker is not in Chelsea’s Champions League squad.
