Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has been told to cement his position in the team in the midst of the club’s transfer ban.
“I love him. Talent-wise, yeah [he’s the best American player ever],” Nash agreed, after host Bill Simmons asked if he was the USA’s best export in history.
“It’s going to be very interesting, because I think he’s been very sharp so far at Chelsea.
“This isn’t a level above him, he can thrive at this level.
“He’s gifted, he’s quick, he’s got a quick mind, he’s versatile.
“At these clubs like Chelsea, where there’s money, he’s lucky because they’ve got a two-window transfer ban so they can’t recruit over him.
“These clubs, though, they’re going to have the opportunity to go out and buy a great player, so as much as anything it’s about him finding his spot and his role in this team and own it.
“He can be a great, great player, but if he doesn’t quite fit and nail down his position in the way that they play, he could flounder.
“He can be a ten, for sure, in the future. A lot of modern tens start wide and then come in, [teams] don’t really play with that ten in the hole that sits behind the striker.”
