RAFA BENITEZ has admitted he can give no guarantees that John Terry will be given a chance to make up for missing the greatest night in Chelsea's history.
The Blues' skipper, who was among the unused substitutes against Basel last night, suffered the agony of sitting out the Champions League final in Munich last year through suspension – having been sent off in the semi-final against Barcelona.
He famously took part in the post-match celebrations, donning a kit to cavort with the triumphant players.
Yet not being on the field must have been every bit as painful as missing the spot-kick in Moscow which denied the Blues the title in 2008.
Terry will be desperate to earn selection for the Europa League final in Amsterdam, but Benitez will not say whether Blues skipper is likely to start.
“I don't know because we have too many games to play before,” said the Chelsea boss.
“The main thing for me is now to enjoy today and then be ready for the challenge of Man United and Tottenham, so it's just one game at a time.
“In this case, it's even more important that we just concentrate on one game.”
