Photo: Chelsea’s Filipe Luis pokes fun at Andre Schurrle
Filipe Luis enjoys nutmegging Andre Schurrle during Chelsea training
Filipe Luis couldn’t resist mischievously uploading a photo of Andre Schurrle being nutmegged by the Chelsea defender during training on Friday.
The Blues geared up for Saturday’s clash against Bradford City in the FA Cup fourth round with a training session at their Cobham facility this morning.
Luis appeared to particularly enjoy the session despite the very un-Brazilian weather sweeping across London, especially after he embarrassed Schurrle.
Luis wrote on Instagram: “My friend @andreschuerrle dancing?? Noo, just a nutmeg.”
Luis and Schurrle will eye the FA Cup as a chance to cement their credentials after being on the fringes of Jose Mourinho’s first-team this season.
The Brazil international has made 15 appearances in all competitions following his £19m move to Stamford Bridge from Atletico Madrid in the summer.
Meanwhile, World Cup winner Schurrle has scored four goals in just 623 minutes of first-team action, prompting reports of a January move.
However, Chelsea manager Mourinho has reiterated that the former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder has a role to play at the west London side.
