Terry: I'm still haunted by Moscow miss

Thursday, July 24, 2008

Chelsea captain John Terry confessed he is still haunted by his decisive penalty miss in the Champions League final in Moscow.

The Blues would have sealed their first Champions League title if their skipper had not missed the final spot-kick. Instead, the captain slipped on the wet turf of the Luzhniki Stadium and saw the ball flew past Edwin van der Sar’s right-hand post.

JT was cried uncontrollably shortly after his penalty howler. He later published an open apology to fans and revealed he had trouble sleeping for days afterwards.

It has been two months since the tragedy but Terry admitted he is still trying to recover from his nightmare.

Terry told The Sun: "Every morning I wake up and it's the first thing on my mind.

"I still think of it. I am still very disappointed by it.

"But I am a big man with a big character and it is now down to me to deal with that."

He said playing and scoring for England straight afterwards helped flush the pain a tiny bit.

However, he was determined to atone this season and hopefully success with Chelsea under new coach Luiz Felipe Scolari can finally wipe away those awful memories.
