Mourinho full of praise for important Chelsea signing Schurrle

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho if of the belief that Andre Schurrle will be a very important player for the club.

The 22-year old German forward has joined the Blues from Bayer Leverkusen for £18million and Mourinho is looking forward to the expected positive impact he will make at Stamford Bridge.

"Andre Schurrle is still so young but he already has great history because he plays in his national team, he has played Champions League and he played three complete seasons for Leverkusen," he told Chelsea's official website.
