Wolfsburg signing Schurrle explains Chelsea departure

VfL Wolfsburg signing Andre Schurrle insists he wasn't forced out of Chelsea.

Schurrle moved to Wolfsburg for a club record fee of £24m on Monday.

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 week. I will never regret this [playing for Chelsea].

"I still love this club, the staff are amazing. I developed my game. I improved myself there. I was a different player when I came to Chelsea. It helped me a lot."
