“Tonight we had to identify what we had to do well – Schurrle was the man to do that. We played a lot from the left side.” – Jose Mourinho.
Working out which players at Chelsea Jose Mourinho likes and those that he doesn’t is proving to be a fascinating watch in the opening weeks of the 2013/2014 season.
Oscar was liked from the off, Juan Mata looks to have worked his way back into Mourinho’s affections and Kevin De Bruyne is now firmly out of favour, having started Chelsea’s opening Premier League match against Hull.
Andre Schurrle meanwhile, may be Jose Mourinho’s absolute favourite.
Last week, at Swindon Town, Mourinho gave Schurrle a TV – no jokes, check out the pictures here.
In Romania on Tuesday night, after Chelsea’s third goal, The Special One shared a long and heartfelt man hug with the German forward. GIF and video below.
