Chelsea defender John Terry has admitted that, despite his side’s progression, he was unhappy with their performance against Sparta Prague in the Europa League.
The Blues drew 1-1 in their second leg at Stamford Bridge against the Czech side thanks to Eden Hazard’s late strike, which sent them into the last-16 of the competition.
But for periods they looked poor and it was only the Belgian’s introduction, as second half substitute, that saved them from extra-time and a possible upset.
And Chelsea captain Terry made his frustrated feelings known after the match, but also admitted he and his team-mates want to win the trophy.
"It was disappointing, the way we started, but we're delighted to go through," he told ESPN.
"We left it as late as we could as sometimes that's the best way. It wasn't our best performance but we're in the next round and we're happy with that.
"It was a great goal from Eden. The manager's rested a couple and to have the likes of Eden on the bench is great. When he came on he showed great sharpness.
"But they had two counter-attacks in the last five minutes and that's not good at all. We're disappointed with that. It's not the best but we're through.
"We've kept going and going and going. The first 80 minutes, nothing went for us. We had a lot of attempts on goal but it didn't go for us. But the persistence from the lads was fantastic.
"We're still very disappointed to be out of the Champions League and watching that on Tuesday and Wednesday nights is frustrating but this is a good competition and we're in it to win it."
