Mourinho praised Schurrle for his contribution.
When asked if he had any regrets about how Schurrle, who joined from Bayer Leverkusen just 18 months ago, had already left the club, Mourinho said: "No, we are happy with what he gave us.
"We are happy with the investment we did one and a half years ago and the profit we did in this window.
"Hopefully we made him a better player and hopefully he have success in the future because we like him very much."
