In what might be a footballing first, suspended Chelsea captain John Terry will be able to lift the Champions League trophy and collect his medal should the Blues beat Bayern Munich, UEFA today confirmed.
Dspite having to watch the match from the stands, Europe’s governing body this afternoon confirmed Terry would be able to join in with any post-match celebrations.
A statement read:
“If Chelsea win the 2012 UEFA Champions League Final, John Terry will be allowed to lift the trophy and collect the medal.”
I don’t think I can recall another situation where a player dressed in a suit led his team up the steps to receive a major trophy. Has this ever happened before?
