Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has been hailed among the greatest of all time in the USA and former USA midfielder Mix Diskerud admits there’s plenty of potential in Christian Pulisic.
Chelsea signed Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund in January and immediately loaned him back to the club for the rest of the season.
The 20 year old has impressed for the USA in the Gold Cup, helping his country to three wins out of three in the competition.
The media in the USA has hailed Pulisic as the greatest American player ever but Diskerud is reluctant to name him as the greatest and instead sees him among the greatest with the likes of Landon Donovan, Tim Howard and Clint Dempsey.
“He’s a fantastic player, I think everybody who likes soccer can see that he is,” Diskerud said.
“If he keeps on performing on the level that he does these days, both at the club and international level, I can’t see why he shouldn’t be deserving of all kind of praise.
“In my book, there is no such thing as ‘greatest of all time’. Especially not in a team sport. From my generation, we have had Landon Donovan, Tim Howard, Clint Dempsey, and Cobi Jones.
“I am just worthy of naming them – not of rating them. They were all the pieces we needed and luckily got. And for that, all sport-loving Americans should be grateful.”
How good do you think Pulisic is? Do you think the 20 year old is worth the hype?
