Chelsea new boy Christian Pulisic made his debut in the 1-0 pre-season friendly defeat to Kawasaki Frontale on Friday at the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama.
The American revealed after the game that he wasn’t bothered about the defeat to Kawasaki Frontale because pre-season games are all about working up the fitness levels.
He also expressed his delight at making his long-awaited Chelsea debut.
“I’m delighted to be out here with the team and to play in an actual match for the first time as a Chelsea player feels really good,” Pulisic said, according to Chelsea’s official website.
“We wanted to come out with the win but pre-season is all about getting minutes under the belt and I feel great for being out there.
“It was a tough one out there with the humidity and they were a very good opponent, we saw that with their goal at the end but you want tough games like that in pre-season.
“It’s all about working up the fitness and getting ready for the new Premier League season. We are all building up to being match fit and ready to play 90 minutes, and that’s what these games are for.”
