Chelsea skipper John Terry says that the club will be taking the Europa League seriously.

Captain John Terry has insisted that the Europa League will be an important competition for Chelsea between now and the end of the season.

Some reports have claimed that the Blues would not take the tournament too seriously, having qualified for the knockout stages after they had failed to progress beyond the Champions League group phase.

However, Terry has revealed that the entire Chelsea squad are eager to lift the trophy in Amsterdam this May.

"We're now in the Europa League and there is one message — we have to go and win it. It's as simple as that," the London Evening Standard quotes the 32-year-old as saying.

"We have to make sure that we're switched on in European weeks because games will be coming on Thursdays and Sundays, which is a different situation for us."

Chelsea's first match in the competition will see them face Sparta Prague on Thursday.

John Terry returns to action as a substitute for Juan Mata against Stoke on January 12, 2013
