Schurrle Hails ‘Fantastic’ Fabregas & Costa

Chelsea forward, Andre Schurrle, has hailed his new teammates, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas, following their brilliant start into the new campaign.

Costa scored Chelsea’s first goal, while Fabregas set-up Schurrle perfectly for the second before Ivanovic scored the third from a Fabregas corner.

“I think for Diego it was a perfect start,” he said as quoted by the Guardian.

“For a striker to come in and score his first goal is always important. He played fantastic in the friendly, and he scored. And now his first goal in competition.

“Cesc was fantastic for me as well, he always had control of the game. He was always running – two assists. So it was a fantastic night for them both but it was only the first match and we have to keep going.

“I think a player like Cesc, every team wants him, so we are happy that he decided for Chelsea. We are happy that he is a Blue now. I am 100% sure he will help us this season.”

Schürrle is now in his second season at Stamford Bridge following an £18m move from Bayer Leverkusen.

The German World Cup winner says he has no intention of leaving and is prepared to quickly catch-up in the first few weeks following his short pre-season.

“I’ve only been training for two weeks after my holidays. It was from zero to 100, directly into team-training and everything,” he added.

“There’s a lot of work for me, but I’m feeling good. I’m enjoying my game, I’m enjoying being on the pitch.

“I enjoyed the World Cup a lot, so I got out of that with a lot of confidence. I am hungry, I want to achieve something with Chelsea. I want to win titles with Chelsea. It was a good start for me but when I am 100% fit, there will be more.”
