Christian Pulisic has revealed his pride at being handed Chelsea’s No10 shirt following the exit of Willian.
Pulisic told CBS: “It meant a lot. It’s no secret that it’s been my favourite number. It’s the number I wanted to be.
“Now that Willian moved on this season, there was an opportunity there.
“I spoke with the club and everyone felt like I was ready for it, and I felt I was ready, and it’s a number I like.
“So it was a really proud moment for me last weekend to wear it for Chelsea for the first time.
“I understand what it means and how much history it has — how many incredible players have worn it before me.
“But I see it as my favourite number. I just want to do well.”
