Nyon, Switzerland – Uefa says Chelsea captain John Terry is eligible to lift the Champions League trophy even though he is suspended for the final against Bayern Munich.

Uefa says in a statement to reporters that “John Terry will be allowed to lift the trophy if Chelsea win, and collect medals.”

Uefa says Terry can join his teammates in the dressing room in Munich on May 19. However, he cannot sit on the bench with coaches and substitutes during the match.

Terry will miss the final after being sent off for putting his knee into Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez's back during Chelsea's semifinal win on Tuesday.

Three other Chelsea players, and three of the Bayern team are also suspended. – Sapa-AP
