Skipper John Terry says that it is vital for Chelsea to qualify for the Champions League next season after winning the competition last year.

Chelsea captain John Terry has insisted that it is vital for his side to obtain Champions League football next season.

The Blues finished sixth in the Premier League table last year, which would have resulted in the side failing to qualify for Europe's elite competition this campaign.

However, the Londoners beat Bayern Munich in the final of the tournament to earn qualification for the Champions League this term, and Terry is adamant that Chelsea must again make the competition next year.

"Champions League football is a must next season," said Terry.

"We saw last season, going to the Champions League final, suffering with all the extra games and we ended up finishing sixth last season.

"It's difficult, but we have a squad and we have to step up."

The Blues were knocked out of the Champions League in December.
