Lampard wants to repeat Champions League glory for great friend Terry

Chelsea ace Frank Lampard is determined to successfully defend their Champions League crown - for great pal John Terry.

Captain Terry was banned for last year's unforgettable win against Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena after being sent off in the semi-final against Barcelona.

Lampard told cfcuk: "Munich was the greatest night of my football life and it's going to be a hard trophy to defend.

"But I'd like to think we could do it again, especially for John Terry who, although he was so pleased Chelsea had won it, was heartbroken he couldn't play in the final.

"He's been with the club all his career and he's the one player who deserved to play against Bayern Munich.

"I was gutted about him not playing.

"You look back to the first leg of the Barcelona semi-final when we won 1-0 at home and John and Gary Cahill were immense. We probably wouldn't have won that game without them.

"So nothing should take away from the fact that John was a massive part of the success we had in Munich, whatever anyone says."
