thumbnail Hello,

The 31-year-old was delighted to notch his seventh goal of the season, his best-ever tally, in the victory over Blackburn and looks ahead to European showpiece on Saturday

Chelsea skipper John Terry has revealed he and his team-mates were delighted to sign off their Premier League campaign with a win, with the Champions League final approaching.

The Blues beat relegated Blackburn 2-1 at Stamford Bridge to confirm a in sixth-place finish after a difficult league campaign.

The defender feels his side have a huge week ahead of them as they prepare for Saturday’s European final against Bayern Munich, in which Terry and several other key players will miss through suspension.

He told the club's official website: “We go into a huge week and we can start concentrating on Munich.

“Robbie [interim boss Di Matteo] has rested players, hopefully we will have everyone fit, and those of us that are suspended have been playing games and we still have a big part to play this week in training and preparation.”

The 31-year-old admitted his side were glad to get the three points after a heavy defeat to Liverpool in midweek in a game where there was little to play for.

He told the club’s official website: “It was really good to end with a win, It was a difficult game even though they had already been relegated, and we were resting guys for the Champions League as well.

“Sometimes you can be a bit slow when it's like that, which our first half was, but we got the two goals before half-time and it set us on our way.

“It's always good to end the league season with a win, especially bouncing back after Liverpool in the week as well.

“We can now go into the Champions League with a little bit of momentum and a winning mentality back so we did what we had to do."

Terry scored in the win notching his seventh goal of the season, his best-ever haul in a campaign, but he was more concerned with the overall performance of the team.

“I am delighted with seven,” he continued.

“I was pleased with the goal because the ball broke on the halfway line, I popped it off and carried on my run, and it was a great ball from Romelu as well, I rose up and it was a decent header, I was delighted with it, and I was pleased with the performance as a whole.”
