Let’s look into the life of the American soccer star who started his professional soccer career in Europe at Borussia Dortmund before moving to Chelsea.
Born September 18, 1998, Pulisic, who plays for the US national team has been one of Chelsea’s standout players this season. The attacking midfielder was a menace to Manchester City in the return fixture of the Premier League at Stamford Bridge, as the Blues defeated the Citizens 2-1, handing Liverpool their first league trophy in three decades.
The 22-year-old midfielder who was born in Hershey, Pennsylvania, became a first-team member of Borussia Dortmund, after making rapid progress through the team’s academy, with just 15 youth games.
After being promoted to the senior team in 2016, at age 17, he was used sparingly in his first season, but got more opportunities the next and became a mainstay in the Dortmund team that won the 2016–17 DFB-Pokal.
He eventually agreed to a move to Chelsea in January 2019 for a transfer fee worth $73 million (£57.6 million), which made him the most expensive American player of all time. He eventually joined the Blues in the summer of 2019–20.
After scoring at every youth level for the US national team, he finally made his senior team debut in March 2016, at the age of 17, he became the youngest player ever to captain the U.S. national team in the modern era.
Christian Pulisic now a Chelsea star
Pulisic has begun to repay the money Chelsea paid to get him from Dortmund right from last season, where he has been scoring crucial goals and creating assists for Frank Lampard‘s side since making his debut on August 11, 2019.
It didn’t take a while for Pulisic to score his first Chelsea goal, which came on October 26, 2019, via a hat-trick in a 4–2 away win against Burnley. By the feat, he becomes the second American to score a hat trick in the Premier League after Clint Dempsey for Fulham in 2012, and also the youngest hat-trick scorer in Chelsea’s history at the age of 21.
With his return from injury after the Premier League restart from coronavirus break, Pulisic has been Chelsea’s best player. In his last encounter, the American got the Man of the Match award despite not scoring a goal in the 3-0 win over Watford.
With Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner coming into the fray, the best of Pulisic is yet to be seen.
