Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo says that the club have 'missed' captain John Terry, who has been serving a four-match ban after being found guilty of racial abuse.
Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has admitted that the team have 'missed' John Terry's influence in the Blues' last few games.
The club captain has been serving a four-match ban after he was found guilty of racially abusing Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand in a West London derby last year.
In that time the Champions League winners lost 3-2 to Manchester United in the league and centre-back David Luiz is likely to miss this weekend's match against Swansea City with an injury.
"The other players have done a fantastic job by coming in and playing when they've been in the team but, certainly, JT is a player that we miss," said Di Matteo.
Terry will be eligible to play for Chelsea after this weekend's Premier League meeting with the Swans.
