Thomas Tuchel tells USMNT not to overplay Christian Pulisic.
The USMNT captain has been working his way back from a persistent knee injury he sustained in August.
He made his comeback as a substitute in the Champions League clash against Malmo last week and also appeared against Burnley from the bench this weekend.
Tuchel has urged USMNT boss Gregg Berhalter not to overplay the winger during the international break.
Tuchel told reporters: “The answer is if you look at the minutes like you said, the question is maybe answered. I hope that they don’t overuse him and are responsible enough.
“Christian still feels some pain. It is a matter of pain management. It’s not a matter of a re-injury or being still injured. It’s just still painful. He has tried hard.
“He wants desperately to come back. We needed him back. It was a good start for him in Malmo. Today he had 10 minutes [against Burnley]. We are a bit worried.
“Hopefully everybody, including himself, is responsible and doesn’t get carried away by emotions and by helping his country to win a super important match. Hopefully it all goes well and the minutes will elevate him and he will come back stronger.”
