Wolfsburg signing Andre Schurrle admits the reality of being only a bit-part player at Chelsea convinced him to leave.
The midfielder joined Wolfsburg in a £24.6million deal on transfer deadline day and has admitted that sitting on the bench was not something he wanted to do at this stage in his career.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, Schurrle said: “I wanted to stay but in the last month I leaned towards changing something because I wanted to do what is fun for me – and that is to play football.
“I could only do it briefly at Chelsea in the past weeks.
“I had a good time with Chelsea.
“I’m still confident and know what I can do.”
