Chelsea's Terry: Champions League domination great for English football

With the prospect of four Premiership clubs in the Champions League quarterfinals, Chelsea captain John Terry says English football can be proud.

"It says a lot about our football and it has done over the last three or four years when we have been there or thereabouts," said Terry. "Credit to English football and the players in English football.

"I watched Arsenal beat Milan. It was fantastic and great to see. Arsenal are a very good footballing side but we knocked the ball about superbly against Olympiacos and I'd like to think people are talking about Chelsea in the past when they talk about us playing it long-ball and this, that and the other.

"But I think we showed against Olympiacos and West Ham we can play anyone off the pitch.

"Hopefully when it comes round to the draw we'll avoid an English club. That wouldn't be the best, but if it comes we'll take it."
