John Terry insists that Chelsea are fully focused on winning the Europa League this season after being parachuted down into Europe’s second tier club competition.

The Blues failed to navigate their way out of the Champions League group stage before Christmas, becoming the first holders of the competition to be sent packing before the knockout stage.

Chelsea travel to Sparta Prague for the first leg of their Europa League last-32 clash on Thursday evening.

And Blues captain Terry says that the west Londoners are now determined to secure Europa League glory this season.

“We’re now in the Europa League and there is one message — we have to go and win it. It’s as simple as that,” Terry told the London Evening Standard.

“We have to make sure that we’re switched on in European weeks because games will be coming on Thursdays and Sundays, which is a different situation for us.”
