Chelsea boss Mourinho praises Schurrle
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has praised forward Andre Schurrle, after his hat-trick secured a victory over the Premier League’s bottom club, Fulham, reports Goal.com.
Assisted by the creativity of Eden Hazard, the German international netted three times in 16 second half minutes at Craven Cottage. He finished confidently past goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg on each occasion, taking his tally for the season to six, and Chelsea’s lead at the top of the Premier League to four points.
Fulham pulled a goal back through defender John Heitinga late on, but Mourinho had praise for Schurrle after the game, and also claimed that he had not spoken at all to his players at half time. He said: "Schurrle's in a learning process in the Premier League but he has cold blood, in front of goal he is cool. He's a good finisher and that's what I expect from him.
"This was a real game of two halves, the first half was very poor and the second was brilliant, it was a great three points for us. I decided not to speak at half-time because I would have needed more than 10 minutes, but the players showed they are intelligent."
