World Cup star reveals why he left Chelsea

Ramires, Mikel, Schurrle, Willian, Salah Many Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern were extremely disappointed to lose Ander Schurrle to Wolfsburg and the German international has revealed exactly why the transfer took place.

Schurrle, who set-up Mario Gotze’s winner in the 2014 World Cup final, lifted the lid  to Sky Sports on his exit as he pointed towards a lack of trust in him by Jose Mourinho, whilst also indicating young players find it difficult in West London and it’s clear Eden Hazard is treated as a favourite.

“I don’t know why Mourinho didn’t trust me. It all felt a bit weird to me. It was up and down the whole time. I didn’t get any consistency from the manager, so found it hard to produce my best.”

Chelsea’s loss has been Wolfsburg’s gain, as Schurrle was a key player for the Bundesliga side last season after joining the club permanently in January- helping Dieter Hecking’s side reach Champions League football and win the DFB Polkal Cup.

Wolfburg may have lost Kevin De Bruyne in the summer but Julian Draxler’s arrival, added to a wealth of other talent at the club, has left the German side looking very strong.
