Ex-Chelsea winger Andre Schurrle has revealed that he was unaware that he was entitled to a Barclays Premier League winners’ medal until former boss Jose Mourinho sent him a text message.

The German winger started the season with the Stamford Bridge outfit but was sold to Bundesliga side Wolfsburg during the January transfer window after finding first team opportunities limited during the first half of the campaign.
Such was the lack of playing time for the Blues that Schurrle was of the opinion that he would not qualify for a medal, but has revealed that his former manager got in touch to correct the error and also invited him to attend the celebrations on the last day of the season:
“I didn’t know that I’d get a medal when I didn’t play most of the second half of the season.” he said (via Mirror Online)
“Jose Mourinho sent me a text to say that I’d get a medal and he asked me to come to the last game. That was very nice for me.”
“I’m really happy for the boys. They played a very good second half of the season so of course for me it’s good to get a medal but the boys did the work.” Schurrle added.
The 24-year-old German World Cup winner made 14 appearances for Chelsea before returning to his native country at the turn of the year, but has struggled to make much of an impact with Wolfsburg as he’s only been able to register one goal in the league.
