`Blues’ watched Barca movies to snuff them out: TerryApril 29th, 2009 - 6:41 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 29 (ANI): Chelsea skipper John Terry has revealed that the Blues watched hours and hours of tapes relating to Spanish football club Barcelona to snuff out that team’s chances of victory in Tuesday’s second leg of this Champions League semi-final.
He said: “We watched videos before the game and we know they like to play little balls through and we stopped them doing it. It was a brilliant performance from the whole team though because to keep a clean sheet here means defending starts at the front with Didier Drogba. They had a lot of possession but we stayed very tight. Everyone had a part to play right through the team and we got it right.
Hiddink admitted he was proud his side had achieved a result no other had managed in the Nou Camp this campaign.
He said: “My plan was to be the first team to stop Barcelona scoring at home this season. We knew we would have to defend well. If you don’t do that against a team like Barcelona then you can have problems.” (ANI)
