Chelsea star has his say on Mourinho v Wenger touchline spat

Wenger Mourinho

Andre Schurrle has been speaking to the German media on the shoving match between Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger.

Last weekend saw two Premier League and city rivals go toe-to-toe as Chelsea took on Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

In the end Chelsea came out on top in a 2-0 triumph but the main talking point after the game was not the performance from either side, but the performance put on at the side-lines.

Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger have never seen eye-to-eye.

Mourinho has claimed that Wenger is 'obsessed' with Chelsea and is a 'specialist in failure'. Wenger has said he is 'embarrassed' for Mourinho and that he is afraid to fail.

These two are never going to share a glass of wine after a game.

But Mourinho certainly knows how to get under the skin of Wenger, the fact the Frenchman has never beaten him a testament to that point.

And last weekend it all boiled over.

After a woeful challenge by Gary Cahill on Alexis Sanchez temperatures raised in the dugouts and the two came to, well, handbags at 50 paces, but it was still an amusing watch to see these grown men have a shoving fight in front of millions of viewers world wide.

Everyone saw it, even some of the players.

One such player was Andre Schurrle.

The German international was playing on the right-hand side, where all the action happened, and he has told Merker-Online about the incident - which he ensured fans did not distract him from the game:

"Of course I saw it, I was on the right side, it was close to me. But I am involved in the game there, so that does not worry you further. You can see it just then, and all talk about it.

"Afterwards, you can already enjoy the aspect seen in the game. It was less funny, but serious for the coaches."

The only question remaining now is when we get this show on the road. Pay-per-view, Wembley Arena, Wenger v Mourinho, winner takes all.

Reckon the Frenchman might have him on the reach...
