John Terry Wears Chelsea Kit And Steals Limelight In Europa League Win: The Nightly EPL

chelsea win europa league 600x674 John Terry Wears Chelsea Kit And Steals Limelight In Europa League Win: The Nightly EPL

Despite all of the credit that Chelsea — their footballers and manager — deserve after Wednesday night’s triumphant win in the UEFA Europa League, John Terry stole many of the headlines by lifting the trophy alongside Frank Lampard.

That Terry decided to lift the trophy with Lampard wasn’t the main issue. Before the game, it was publicly announced that if Chelsea won the game that Lampard and Terry would lift the cup even though Terry was suffering from an injury.

However, the main criticism Terry received was on social media, where people were outraged that Terry disrobed from his tracksuit to reveal his Chelsea kit underneath, as if he had played in the game. And second, Terry was criticized because even though he shared the emotional moment of lifting the trophy with Lampard, viewers were clearly able to see Terry but Lampard — the star of the night in many ways — was practically hidden by the other players who were trying to get their hands on the silverware.

What are your thoughts on the matter? Are you outraged? Should Terry have walked up to share the trophy but wore a suit like Eden Hazard did? Or did John Terry deserve to be up there with his teammates wearing the blue and white kit of Chelsea FC? Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
