Terry & Lampard make plans for Champions League final

John Terry revealed he and Frank Lampard plan to lift the Champions League together after sharing the honour of raising the FA Cup at Wembley yet again.

Terry and Lampard each held one handle of the cup as it was hoisted aloft after the Blues’ historic 2-1 victory over Liverpool last night, their fourth triumph in the last six finals.

The win also saw Terry become the first man to captain the same club to FA Cup glory four times. But if Chelsea beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League final on May 19, the honour of being the first player to skipper them to the ultimate prize will go to Lampard, with Terry suspended.

UEFA have confirmed Terry would be allowed to lift the European Cup and asked if yesterday’s routine would be repeated a fortnight later, Terry said: “Let’s hope so. We did it when we did the double (in 2010).

“I said to Frank: ‘Moments like that go down in history’, and it’s important myself and Frank were there when we did the double.”
