Chelsea's Schurrle can't wait to get started with Mourinho

Andre Schurrle is eagerly anticipating his new career under Jose Mourinho.

Upon completing his £18million transfer from Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea, Schurrle highlighted his enthusiasm to be tutored by former Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss Mourinho.

"I'm really looking forward to working with Mourinho. I got to know him at Michael Ballack's testimonial a few weeks ago where we talked a little bit," he told the club's official website.

"He gave me advice on where to live and also explained what he expects from me.

"He's a very good person with a big personality; he's a great manager so it's an absolute honour for me to now be one of his players."
