Published Add your comment

Germany international Andre Schurrle has been invited to join in with Chelsea's end of season celebrations by Blues manager Jose Mourinho, reports ESPN. 

Despite currently plying his trade for Wolfsburg, and having spent less than two years at Stamford Bridge, Mourinho wants the forward at the celebrations.

Schurrle made a total of 22 appearances for Chelsea this season, scoring five goals in the process. Despite leaving the Blues on the last day of the January transfer window, Chelsea's Portuguese manager believes the winger should be a part of the party, and deserves a Premier League winners medal also.

Schurrle moved for a reported £28m, one of the highest fee's paid for a player in the Bundesliga. With first team opportunities few and far between, Schurrle wanted regular action and made the choice to move back to Germany.


"Jose Mourinho sent me a text to say that I'd get a medal and he asked me to come to the last game. That was very nice for me," Schurrle told the BBC. "I didn't know that I'd get a medal when I didn't play most of the second half of the season."

"I'm really happy for the boys. They played a very good second half of the season so of course, for me, it's good to get a medal but the boys did the work."

Schurrle has an opportunity to add to his trophy collection as Wolfsburg take on Borussia Dortmund in the DFB Pokal final in late May.
