Terry upset with booking

Terry upset with booking

Chelsea captain John Terry believes he should have escaped the booking that will keep him out of the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final with Liverpool.

Terry was booked in the second-half of last night’s 3-1 win for a challenge on Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina and will be suspended for the return leg at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

The England skipper also revealed that Reina did not think his challenge warranted a yellow card.

“I felt as though I went for the ball, that’s all I ever do as a player,” explained Terry.

“I’ve spoke to Reina again and he said it wasn’t a yellow card. He already knew I was on a yellow card and he was honest with me.

“It reminds of when Liverpool’s Xabi Alonso was booked in a similar situation with Eidur Gudjohnsen a couple of years ago. He was crying after that game. I’m obviously very disappointed.”
