Chelsea manager José Mourinho has stated that the season could be over for the likes of Petr Cech and John Terry after the pair suffered what appeared to be a serious injury in the Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid. The first leg of the semi-final was taking place at the Vicente Calderon. The match ended in a 0-0 draw which has left everything to play for the second leg at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea had to defend very deep in order to get this draw, but they also played a huge price by losing to key players for the remainder of the season.

Petr Cech had to be taken off early in the first half with what appeared to be a dislocated elbow, while John Terry suffered ligament damaged during the second half. He also had to be taken off. After the match, Jose Mourinho said that the season could be over for both players. Cech, especially, will be out for up to 4 months of action since he has to undergo a surgery. Terry may return to the team if they progress to the final of the competition, according to Mourinho. The final of the Champions League will take place towards the final week of May.

"Petr Cech's season is over. Don't ask me technically, but season over. And John - we have to play the final for him to play with us. We had problems before the game, we had problems during the game, but we will fight. We didn't start the game thinking of a 0-0, but the game goes in a certain direction where you feel you have to be safe, don't concede and try to score in one of the few chances you create," said the Chelsea manager, who was also satisfied with the outcome of the match.
