What’s this, a player heading into a Wembley friendly with England claiming he has been stitched up by the English media!
Last week it was Alexis Sanchez denying he had even spoken to the Daily Express, today Andre Schurrle has recoiled at the horror of his comments making the Sunday papers.
The Mail on Sunday published their take on Schurrle saying the following ahead of Germany’s friendly v England:
Rooney is a great player, but we have good quality, too, in every position, and maybe twice, so I don’t know if he would play.
Now, Schurrle has denied the quotes altogether on Twitter…
That's not what I meant to say about Rooney!!!! He is a great player!!!!
