Ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second-leg clash between Chelsea and Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge, former Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin has admitted he likes Christian Pulisic a lot.

Sahin, a finalist with Borussia Dortmund in 2013, admitted he likes Pulisic a lot because the forward was always ready to listen and learn.

“I like Christian a lot,” Sahin told Goal.

“He was always a good player, you could see that, but what I liked especially was that he was always ready to listen and learn.

“He was always humbled, he was always focused on his goals and he was really determined. This is what I loved about him.

“We still keep in touch. He’s a very good guy, and I hope that his impact at Chelsea can be even bigger.

“You see in his first seasons that there is an impact, as we saw in the first leg against Real Madrid, but I am sure there is a lot more to give.”
