Chelsea signed 20 year old Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund in January for a fee of £58million and immediately loaned him back to the Bundesliga leaders.
The American international has been keeping an eye on Chelsea’s recent poor results, which have seen Maurizio Sarri come under increasing pressure, and has faith things will turn around at Chelsea.
“It’s tough for me to say,” Pulisic said. “They’ve had some tough results but I know they’re going to work it out. They’re a great team with great players and a good coach. So they’re going to figure everything out.”
Pulisic was part of the Dortmund team that lost 3-0 to Tottenham on Wednesday in the Champions League and he revealed he is looking forward to playing in the Premier League.
“Tottenham’s a great side, it’s good to play against great competition in any league,” Pulisic added. “But obviously I’m definitely looking forward to next season.”
Chelsea’s next game is a Europa League clash against Malmo later today and Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admits the Blues need to have a good result against the Swedish club.
“(Wednesday’s game against Malmo) is the most important, then Monday [in the] FA Cup the most important, then final of the League Cup,” Sarri insisted. “We need to have short-term targets.
“We need to have a good result. We need to get through [in the Europa League], then win the [Carabao Cup]. We need targets in the short term and then [we can] dream in the long term.”
