Chelsea legend John Terry has admitted that watching us lift the Community Shield at Wembley was painful despite many people disregarding the game and labelling it as a pre-season friendly, The Guardian reports.
Terry played the majority of the game at the heart of the defence, but he and his colleagues could do nothing to stop Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from rifling the winner into the top corner in the first half.
Terry has climbed the Wembley steps on a number of occasions and is often going up to collect a winners medal, and he couldn’t help but feel some considerable disappointment after seeing us parade our triumph.

“Losing is just horrible in all respects. Forget the record, there was a trophy on the line,” Terry was quoted as saying.
“It hurt when you saw them walk up the stairs to lift it. When you see them walk up, no matter if it’s a friendly or a Community Shield, it’s a trophy.”

Terry, no matter what many think about him as a person, is a born winner and we should, therefore, take pride in our victory at Wembley on Sunday.
It was evident what the occasion meant to Petr Cech and if his ruthless mentality can be spread around the squad, Terry may have to watch us lifting more silverware on a consistent basis.
