Chelsea signing Schurrle: Ozil, Khedira talked up Mourinho

Chelsea signing Andre Schurrle admits Real Madrid pair Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira had nothing but praise for manager Jose Mourinho.

Schurrle says he spoke with his Germany teammates ahead of choosing to leave Bayer Leverkusen.

"I spoke about him with my national team-mates Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil, who have played under him for Real Madrid.

"They both told me he is the best coach they have ever worked with.

"I don't fear suffering the same fate as Marko and just being a replacement. I will try to make my way at Chelsea."
