Sancho tells Chelsea fans what to expect from new signing Christian Pulisic
Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho shares few things the Chelsea fans can expect from their new signing Christian Pulisic.
The American was signed by the Blues during the January transfer window for a fee around £57.6m, but he will arrive at Stamford Bridge in the summer.
He is highly-rated in Germany and Chelsea were convinced to shell the cash on him.
And Sancho, who has become star at Dortmund, thinks Pulisic is one of the better footballers around.
Speaking to ESPN, he said: “The club had shown with a player like Christian Pulisic that they were going in the right way, playing youngsters and giving them a chance. He came from the same situation as me, leaving his family behind.
“He was so young, and he was brave enough. America is a lot further away than England and he’s taken a bigger step than I have done. How he’s handled that, what he does on the pitch, his mentality [towards] football, it’s just crazy. The passion he has. I admire him.
“He’s an outstanding player, I really do look up to him. Him going away from home shows that you have to do things to get out of your comfort zone, sometimes.
“I feel it’s worked for him and it’s working for me now, because we’re both staying focused and keep training hard.”
Chelsea face Manchester City tomorrow at the Etihad. Their fans would be buzzing for the arrival of Pulisic in few months time.
