Wolfsburg star Andre Schurrle has sympathised with his former club Chelsea as they continue to struggle in the wilderness of relegation after lifting the Barclays Premier League title last season.
Schurrle, 25, joined Wolfsburg from Chelsea for £22miliion last February after just one full season at Stamford Bridge.
Jose Mourinho’s side have been beaten eight times in the league this season and now sit 14th in the table after 15 matches played and the German World Cup winner reveals he has been watching the misery at west London.
“I watch the games, to see how the teams play,” Schurrle said.
“I see the table and, with Chelsea, it’s my former club. I see the situation, I read some stuff about it, and it’s really disappointing to see that it’s going like this.
“But that’s football, you have to give everything at the top and even for a big team like this, it can happen.
“So I feel a little bit sorry for what’s happened there but I’m sure they have a great team, a great manager and I’m sure they will get out of this misery.”
