Christian Pulisic is the closest thing promised to American football fans craving a legitimate star. I’m not sure what it means to be brought to Chelsea after a successful start in Dortmund, but the closest I can think of is going from a standalone NBA franchise for small markets like Spurs to the Lakers or bulls to switch or nets.
If Mikhail Prokorov still owned Brooklyn, the analogy would be perfect, as they would likely be under an operating freeze, just as the UK froze Roman Abramovich’s assets over the Russian national’s ties to Vladimir Putin.
Besides that, we need to send an extraction crew to London and get our man out of there. Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has relegated Pulisic to the doghouse and Pulisic’s father Mark is not particularly happy about it.
in one now deleted Instagram post – the best way to tease your grievances – the elder Pulisic shared a picture of his son and wrote: “The sad thing is he loves this club, his teammates and London. … is a professional through and through. Onward and upward my boy…big 6 months ahead..💪”
Predictably, Tuchel was asked about it, and He gave his best Coach Speak answer. He and Pulisic have “zero problems” and the 23-year-old has been “positive for the last few weeks”.
However, there has been another positive development for Chelsea and Pulisic lately. Potential buyer Todd Boehly is expected to sign the first round of documents to begin the club’s takeover from Abramovich on Friday. Boehly is best known for owning 20 percent of the Los Angeles Dodgers. (He also started Eldridge, a company that owns and invests in a few companies or something.)
The reason for this good news for the team and players is that Chelsea will soon have an ownership group that will not be sanctioned by their government, lifting the restrictions and allowing the club to take on football club things like attending the transfer window.
There is a rumor that it could be Pulisic’s turn to replace Paulo Dybala juventus when the striker transfers from his Serie A squad. Dortmund, Chelsea and Juventus are storied clubs well known among casual football fans and it would be great to see Pulisic regain his Dortmund form for another huge success.time team.
The attacking midfielder played 22 minutes, 19 minutes and 14 minutes in his last three games and the last time he played a full 90 minutes – a 4-0 win over Burnley on March 5 – he had one goal, one assist and and received the Mone of the mTo win a price.
Pulisic’s goal highlights on Twitter are the easiest way to send US football fans into a daydream and it’s beyond depressing that that joy was taken away from us because he was pushed to the back of the line at Stamford Bridge. We can see him play at the USMNT but it’s like watching Dirk Nowitzplay ki for Germany or Giannis Antetokuonmpo for Greece. It’s not the same as watching them try to carry teammates who are literally not in the same league as them.
In anticipation of coming-Our party in the English Premier League from a guy who was 21 when he first arrived in 2019 was probably a little optimistic but although it sucks that anyone who has bought a Pulisic Chelsea shirt Rarely has he been able to wear it with pride, he still wears it for much of his career.
A few issues with his health have hampered his tenure with the team and that’s the easiest way to lose your place in the starting XI. It’s Chelsea too, and no one not even Romelu LukakuShe is immune to downsizing due to injury.
That’s totally unfair and in no world am I saying Pulisic is on the same level as Mo Salah, but the Liverpool star had a miserable time as a blue than Pulisic and both were around the same age during their time in London.
My point is not that football pundits will debate whether Pulisic is the best player in the world in eight years; It’s that one of the best players in today’s game couldn’t even break through at Chelsea at such a young age. Salah had to fiddle around for a few years in Serie A to regain his form and confidence before triumphantly returning to the EPL.
Hopefully Pulisic can follow a similar path to career rejuvenation – or at least find himself on the pitch and back of the net more often when he goes to Italy.
