Andre Schurrle will get the opportunity to fight for his place in the Chelsea team – but Jose Mourinho has explained that the World Cup winner will have to improve his physicality on the pitch. reports The Times.
Schurrle’s first team appearances have been a rare occurrence at Stamford Bridge this season despite him playing a key role in bringing a fourth World Cup title to Germany last summer.
Now Mourinho has taken a more dogmatic approach to his starting line-up than ever before with Willian and Eden Hazard proving to be among the favourites for the Blues.
Recent speculation surrounding Lionel Messi’s future could be the death knell for Schurrle’s Chelsea career though as the club may have to offload a considerable number of assets in order to bring in the Barcelona man and avoid breaching financial fair play regulations.
