Schurrle excited to work with Mourinho

New Chelsea signing Andre Schurrle cannot wait to start work under Blues manager Jose Mourinho.

• Blog: What can Schurrle offer?

Schurrle, 22, finally completed his move from Bayer Leverkusen to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday for a reported £18 million.

The Germany international had been touted for a move to West London for some time, and even met Mourinho, before the deal had been finalised, at former Blues midfielder Michael Ballack's recent testimonial.

"I'm really looking forward to working with him [Mourinho]," Schurrle told the club's official website. "I got to know him at Michael Ballack's testimonial a few weeks ago where we talked a little bit.

"He gave me advice on where to live and also explained what he expects from me. He's a very good person with a big personality; he's a great manager so it's an absolute honour for me to now be one of his players.''

Having spoken to Mourinho, Schurrle is now desperate to embark on his Chelsea career, and is hoping to inspire the club to more silverware.

"Hopefully I can win a lot of titles in the next five years,'' Schurrle said. "We have a great team with some very talented young players. We can all improve ourselves, and under Jose Mourinho I'm confident we can have a really great season.

"For this club, winning titles is always the main objective. We have a great young team with so much quality. We are capable of doing well in the Premier League, Champions League and the cup competitions as well, and I hope to play a big part.''

It was announced on June 13 that Chelsea and Leverkusen had reached an agreement for Schurrle's transfer, with only the paperwork delaying the completion of the move.

And the former Mainz player concedes he had wanted to join the Blues since as far back as the beginning of last season.

"I wanted to come here so I think I watched every single Chelsea game [last season],'' he said. "They finished the season very strongly; finishing third was very important for the club, qualifying for the Champions League without having to go through the qualifiers, so the last month in particular was very good.''
