Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho claims he has no regrets over Andre Schurrle’s sale to Wolfsburg on deadline day.
The German international spent 18 months at Stamford Bridge after signing from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011.
The Blues’ boss has expressed that Schurrle was a success during his short spell in West London. However, also admitted they had to cash-in on the forward, as they made £4million profit.
Mourinho said: “Schurrle is a player we like very, very much but the business was very good and we are happy with it. We are happy with what he gave us. We are happy with the investment we made one and half years ago. We are happy with the profit we did in this window.”
He also added: “Hopefully we made him a better player and hopefully he can have success in the future.”
It is believed the money made from Schurrle’s return to the Bundesliga helped fund Chelsea’s Juan Cuadrado capture.
The 24-year old’s last goal for Chelsea came in the recent 5-0 away victory at Swansea City.
