Frank Lampard has talked about Christian Pulisic.
The young american was the heartbeat of the Chelsea team last season. He had a brilliant breakthrough season and scored many goals and created many more. However, this season it would seem he is struggling with a nagging injury and Lampard has talked about how carefully Pulisic should be managed.
“We’re the same as we were in midweek. Hakem Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi we know are out for a couple of weeks,” said the Chelsea boss.
“Christian Pulisic had a tiny bit of awareness on his hamstring but he is training normally.”
Moments later Lampard adds about the American: “I don’t want to call this an injury in midweek, if it was a different type of game I would have used him. I have to find the way to get the best out of him consistently.”
Pulisic has played little football this season and has left the bench or the pitch on three separate occasions. However, he has also worked hard to get back to full fitness and one has to wonder whether the young USA international needs to change his playing style with his whole future ahead of him.
