Mark Pulisic, Christian Pulisic’s father, created a sensation with a recent post regarding his son.
“The unfortunate thing is he loves this club, teammates, and London…. pours his heart and soul into becoming a pro,” Mark Pulisic wrote after the game against Everton before hastily deleting his message.
“It’s all uphill from here, my kid…
“It’ll be a big six months ahead.”
Christian Pulisic’s Chelsea career has been a roller coaster, with the American displaying flashes but unable to establish himself as a consistent starter over time.
The £58 million signing is currently behind Timo Werner in the pecking order for a starting spot at the club.
Pulisic’s father, Mark, warned that his son may leave Chelsea at the end of the season after another substitute appearance against Everton.
Pulisic has struggled to establish himself at the club over the last three years, and injuries haven’t helped matters.
Craig Burley, a former Chelsea midfielder, has advised Pulisic to examine himself in the mirror, claiming that his past coaches could not have been incorrect in benching him.
Craig Burley, a former Chelsea midfielder, told ESPN:
“It appears like he is frustrated because he isn’t receiving regular game time, the game time that they would like with the World Cup approaching.”
“He’ll want to be playing consistently ahead of the World Cup, but he hasn’t been playing often at Dortmund in recent months.” Frank Lampard didn’t get a lot of chances to play him. And now we have Tuchel, who has played him on occasion but not consistently.
“It’s no coincidence that he’s been in and out of the squad under at least three different coaches.” When this happens, you must examine yourself.
“The coach believes he has superior players.” Tuchel isn’t keeping him out because he believes Pulisic is the better player. It depends on the opponent and the system on that particular day.
“A manager has to make that choice, and if you’re a family member, you have to accept it.” This isn’t kindergarten, nor is it a high school football game. This is a profession, and managers have a lot of power.”
