Fulham forward Andre Schurrle says that he will celebrate if he scores against former club Chelsea this weekend and doesn’t understand why anyone would have a problem with someone doing so.
Schurrle played for Chelsea’ between 2013 and 2015 and will return when Fulham make the trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The 28-year-old has scored five Premier League goals since joining Fulham on loan from Borussia Dortmund in the summer and he says he would have no problem celebrating were he to do so at the weekend.
“I didn’t really think about it. I don’t understand why even fans get angry for a player celebrating,” he told ‘Sky Sports News’.
“If I celebrate at Stamford Bridge, it would never be against Chelsea fans or against the club, it will be just for me and the Fulham fans.
“If I should score it will be spontaneous and I hope no one will take offence.
“Every time scoring against a former club is special because you know everyone around the place.”
