Chelsea captain John Terry says Jose Mourinho remains in the heart of many Blues fans ahead of tonight's clash at Inter Milan.

The defender, 30, has nothing but respect for his former Chelsea boss Mourinho and is relishing the chance to see his old pal again when the Blues face Inter Milan in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Terry told The Sun: "Jose was an inspiration to us all at Stamford Bridge and I truly value his friendship.

"It's going to be a sensational tie between two great teams but when I stick on the shirt tonight I'll be focused on one thing only - playing and winning for Chelsea.

"It's the way I play the game and the way I always will."
