Earlier on Thursday, Schurrle’s girlfriend has taken to Instagram to wish the Chelsea forward a happy 24th birthday.
Montana Yorke wrote: “Happy 24th Birthday to the most incredible man I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.
“Almost 1 year ago I went out for sushi with a man who would change my life forever in the most spectacular way possible.
“I can’t believe the crazy things that we have experienced together in just a year and the way my love for your grows every day.
“Cheers to the man who tells me I’m beautiful in the morning when I wake up with messy hair and morning breath and who always pushes me to be the best I can be and who has taught me to love myself unconditionally, flaws and all.
“Thank you for letting me into your life and for bringing such a bright light into mine. I love you @andreschuerrle Happy Birthday to you.”
