VfL Wolfsburg’s new signing Andre Schuerrle has said he had no regrets about being forced to leave Chelsea having joined the Bundesliga club after failing to earn a starting spot.
The German world cup winner joined the Germans for a fee of £24 million, as Jose Mourinho wanted to bring in Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina.
And despite reports claiming that he did not want to leave, Schurrle has admitted he is delighted with the move.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “I wanted to stay but the last weeks or last month I tended 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.”
