Abramovich wants Euro glory - Terry

Chelsea captain John Terry has acknowledged club owner Roman Abramovich wants Carlo Ancelotti's team to win multiple trophies again this season - with the Champions League a major target.

Abramovich has seen Chelsea feature frequently in the latter stages in Europe without going on to become champions. Last season they won the Premier League and FA Cup, but in Europe they lost to eventual champions Inter Milan in the first knockout round.

Chelsea brushed aside Marseille 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening, and Terry said: "The message is clear from the start of the season - the owner wants to win everything. With the squad we have he expects to."

He added: "You can't prioritise the Champions League or Premier League and put one in front of the other.

"But the Champions League is the one massive trophy that still eludes us and we'd love to win that. It is a trophy the owner wants to win and the manager wants to win.

"One reason he brought the manager in is his experience and the amount of times he has won the trophy himself."
