The 23-year-old has struggled of late to nail down a regular starting place in the west London club’s midfield, despite returning Blues head coach Jose Mourinho having splashed out a whopping 20m euros in order to lure the winger from Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen at the beginning of this campaign.
However, despite the Germany international having spent large parts of the recent season warming the substitutes’ bench, the midfielder’s demotion does not seem to be affecting his spirits too much, at least if Schurrle’s most recent entry on his Instagram page is anything to judge by, with the player and his father our celebrating the latter’s birthday on Saturday night.
