LONDON, February 16 – Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink has ruled skipper John Terry out of Tuesday night’s Champions League last-16 first-leg clash against Paris Saint-Germain.

The defender was forced off in the first half of Saturday’s 5-1 rout of Newcastle with a hamstring injury and stayed behind as the rest of the squad travelled to the French capital.

And Hiddink revealed it was too “difficult” for Terry to make the journey to France and says the 35-year-old is also a doubt for Chelsea’s FA Cup fifth-round tie against Manchester City.

“It was a decision made by me because he was having too much trouble to travel, even to try tomorrow, we had a test this morning and it didn’t work out well so the decision was made to leave him at home,” said Hiddink.

“He was himself convinced he could not be of worth for the team at the moment.

“He has a little problem with his hamstring and a tendon in the hamstring area, that’s why we made the ultimate test this morning and decided not to participate.

“[It is] difficult [for the weekend], that’s why we prefer to have him in Cobham training centre to have daily treatment and see how his level will be for the weekend.”
