Former Premier League goalkeeper Brad Friedel believes Christian Pulisic can get a fresh start under Graham Potter at Chelsea. He wants the USMNT star to play more when the World Cup is two months away.
Pulisic didn’t have a good time under Thomas Tuchel and often found himself on the bench. The American has made a difference as a substitute but has yet to reach the level expected of him.
Speaking to Betway (via GOAL), Friedel claimed he hopes Pulisic can make the most of the change in leadership at Chelsea. He said:
“From a US fan perspective, I want Pulisic to play more and I want him to do well at the World Cup. He could really benefit from Thomas Tuchel leaving because things weren’t going incredibly well on the player front.” of starts and minutes on the pitch.”
“Again, I don’t know what Graham Potter thinks of him, but he’s a new head coach so he’ll give him a chance: eventually I’m sure. But he could be one of the players who really benefits from a change in leadership.”
The Chelsea star was fired for making statements against Thomas Tuchel
Don Hutchinson has shot Christian Pulisic for his statements against Thomas Tuchel in his upcoming book. “Christian Pulisic: My Journey So Far”.
The American forward claimed he managed to score against Real Madrid in the 2020/21 season by not following the former Chelsea manager’s advice.
During a speech on ESPN FC’s YouTube channel, Hutchinson said:
“It’s ridiculously naive from Christian Pulisic. Okay, it’s his book, so he feels like he has his little say against Thomas Tuchel, but isn’t he naive enough to think that Thomas Tuchel won’t be happy and he will be talking to other managers?”
“Managers change their minds. What’s happening with you? You’re a little disappointed, you’re a little upset. But it all sounds a bit babyish to me. Christian Pulisic whines. What’s in it for him?”
Pulisic has only started once in the Premier League this season and has been substituted on five times. He has yet to score or assist in eight games for Chelsea in all competitions this season.
