Chelsea skipper John Terry is motivated by the fact that he has yet to experience lifting the prestigious Champions League trophy as a captain on the pitch.

The Blues won the coveted European title in 2012, but the 33-year-old was not able to suit up because of a suspension.

"Then the opportunity came about again and I ended up missing it. But I was just happy in Munich in 2012 that the players and fans got what they deserved, and we got our hands on the trophy," said the former England international.

"I don't think football owes me anything, it's about making it happen. We've done it before but we've had disappointments as well, and when you do get your hands on the trophy it lives with you every day."

"There's nothing bigger than the Champions League and I'm always determined."

"It meant an awful lot to me that night [the 2012 final], playing or not playing. I had surgery on my knee before the Napoli game, came back, scored a goal and played a big part. When I look back I feel I certainly had a part to play, on the pitch and in the dressing room."

Meanwhile, Terry revealed that the west London side are all the more driven by making it this far - the semi-finals - in the competition.

"We want to win the game, that's where we want to be, in these big finals. In these big games you don't need to say too much. With the bigger games it tends to be a quieter dressing room because of concentration levels. The players know full well what tonight means, for us, the manager and the fans."

"After Munich I wasn't thinking too far ahead, I was just happy the fans got what they deserved, and the players as well."

"We're back here again and every year the desire from the squad is exceptional. You look at the ones who have been here a long time - Pete, Ash, Lamps - it means the world to us all, so when the new players do come in it's important they know we train hard every day. That resolve and determination comes firstly from the manager, but also from ourselves as players."

"I'm glad it's come around again and hopefully we can make another final which, in itself, would be a great achievement."
