Barcelona star Lionel Messi, one of the greatest footballers of all time, has given his verdict on Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic.

Messi named 15 players in ‘Youth on the Rise’ players as part of a collaboration with Topps trading cards, with Chelsea duo Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic in the team.

Speaking about Pulisic, Messi said: “He has great balance and agility.”

Chelsea fans have missed the impact of Blues winger Christian Pulisic who has been injured since New Year’s Day fixture against Brighton.

Pulisic has been out of action for over two months as he suffered an adductor injury against Brighton on New Year’s Day.

Asked recently, if he was feeling 100% yet by a fan in a Q&A with fellow USA national team player Weston McKinnie, Pulisic replied: “I’m feeling ready to go.

“I’m feeling good.  I miss playing.”
