Former Chelsea player Craig Burley has warned Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic that he won’t get into Frank Lampard’s team next season just because he sells shirts.
Burley insists Pulisic will only play if he’s deserving of a place in the starting XI.
“Anyone who thinks they are going to get in this team because they might sell a few jerseys is living in cloud cuckoo land because Lampard knows he is under pressure to close that gap, get Chelsea back to the top,” former Blues midfielder Burley told ESPN FC.
“Abramovich will expect it, he’s gone out with the cheque book already and given him Timo Werner – one of the best forwards in European football – and he’ll expect results.
“None of that frontline, or any other player in the Chelsea team, will play next season or beyond unless they are deserving of a place in the starting XI. It’s as simple as that.”
