Crazy Ball – Christian Pulisic is a doubt for Frank Lampard because he is an American player and is technically not considered too special.
The 22-year-old player was brought in by the Premier League club in the era of Maurizio Sarri's coaching for a transfer fee of 58 million pounds, or about 1.1 trillion from Borussia Dortmund.
However, since Frank Lampard was appointed to handle Chelsea, Christian Pulisic's name was sidelined within a few months. Even the player was not included in the squad in several matches last season. But he managed to become an important part of the Blues' front line, especially in the second half of the 2019/2020 season.
Through his contribution, Chelsea successfully finished the domestic league competition ranked fourth in the standings and this new season continues to play in the Champions League.
However, Jesse Marsch, who is now handling RB Salzburg, revealed that Frank Lampard initially underestimated the qualities of Christian Pulisic.
Talk to Extratime RadioJesse Marsch said when he spoke to Frank Lampard last season about Pulisic he seemed to doubt it and the player was told to learn a lot.
In fact, at that time Jesse Marsch had explained that Christian Pulisic had good achievements at his young age in Germany with Borussia Dortmund.
With this note Marsch considered that Frank Lampard had underestimated him because he was American. In addition, what made him doubtful was that he did not get his football education completely in Germany.
With Chelsea last season, Pulisic was recorded to have played in 34 matches scoring 11 goals. 9 of which the player created in the Premier League competition.
While in this new season, the player has only appeared in 2 matches in the domestic league. It's interesting to wait whether Christian Pulisic can appear consistent or not.
