“I Got A Text Telling Me I Had Won A Premier League Medal” – Former Chelsea Star Andre Schurrle

“I Got A Text Telling Me I Had Won A Premier League Medal” – Former Chelsea Star Andre Schurrle

Wolfsburg winger Andre Schurrle has spoken at his surprise after he was informed by text message that he had received a Premier League winner’s medal.

The 24-year-old was deemed surplus to requirements in Chelsea’s race for the title this season and having only made 14 appearances for the Blues come February, Schurrle departed in a £22m move to the Bundesliga.

However, Schurrle – who wasn’t expecting any form of recognition – has said how nice it was when he received a text from none other than Jose Mourinho claiming that he would be getting a medal for his troubles.

Speaking to the BBC World Service, Schurrle said:

I didn’t know that I’d get a medal when I didn’t play most of the second half of the season.

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 could be in for a hat-trick of medals this season if Wolfsburg can overcome Borussia Dortmund in the German Cup final having lifted the World Cup with Germany last summer.
