Will Ryan Bertrand Show John Terry How Its Done Again
Friday, 13th Mar 2015 14:13
Ryan Bertrand remains the only player to make his Champions League debut in the final, meaning he has played in one more winning Champions League final Team than "JT"
When Saints fought against all odds to secure a draw against Chelsea back on New Years Day the after match celebrations were missing one thing and that was Ryan Bertrand fully clad in his Saints kit joining his team mates on the pitch and celebrating like he had actually taken part in the game.
Bertand was of course missing from the Saints side a couple of months ago with his signing from the Blues still being only a loan and not being able to face his parent club, as was Terry missing from that Champions League Final which has lead to years of ridicule aimed at a man they call Mr Chelsea amongst other things.
On Sunday they come face to face for the first time in opposing sides and both Bertrand and of course Terry himself must find it very ironic that a player of Bertrand's undoubted quality, quality that was not good enough for Chelsea it seemed should have the honour of playing in and winning a Champions League final whereas Terry does not despite his many games in their colours.
Most football fans in England though barring those who support Chelsea would call it Karma and with Chelsea out of the Champions League earlier this week it is again another year when "JT" wont be able to right what he see's as a wrong and his trophy cabinet have a Champions League Winners medal in it, at least one he actually played a part in winning.
