Former Chelsea midfielder Ramires has jumped to the defence of John Terry over his full-kit celebration at the 2012 Champions League final.
After being sent off in the second-leg of their semi-final with Barcelona, Terry was suspended for the victory over Bayern Munich in Germany.
Despite playing most of the game on the back foot, the Blues claimed a dramatic penalty shootout victory over the Bundesliga giants, to secure their first European Cup.

And following the win, the Blues captain got changed into his full kit from his club suit for the trophy lift and post-match celebrations.
Terry was widely mocked for changing into his full strip by football fans all over the country, but the Brazilian has now revealed he was actually told to do so by the club.
“All of us changed post-match,” Ramires told FourFourTwo magazine.
“The idea came from the club, because they wanted everyone ready for the team photo.”
While Ramires also explained his emotions during the game, adding: “I was really nervous! I kicked things. I screamed, I cursed.
“When Bayern scored, it was past the 80th minute and some fans started to take the p***.
“But when Drogba scored, let’s say we had revenge.
“It was a happiness explosion! Terry stood up on the seat to celebrate.
“When it came to Drogba for the last penalty I was very confident – he was our best taker. We were over the moon at full-time.”
