Christian Pulisic overcame an injury hit start to the season, and played a key role as he helped Chelsea to win the Champions League.

Pulisic became the first American to win the Champions League, as he set history in the country.

US national team coach Gregg Berhalter has hailed Pulisic for his performance with Chelsea and for achieving what no American has achieved, as he revealed that they were proud of him.

“He is a player that has gone when no other American player has gone and won the Champions League with this club and played a key role in doing that,” Berhalter said of Pulisic.

“So, as a group we’re extremely, extremely proud of him. I think it says a lot about him that he’s here now and he wants to be on the field playing. It says a lot about him as a competitor and his role within this team.”

Pulisic racked up 44 appearances all season long, but he has admitted that he’s raring to go for the US national team as they contend for the CONCACAF Nations League.

“It’s been a long season,” he said. “I’ve definitely had a lot of ups and downs but, physically, I feel very good, and mentally good too. I’m definitely looking forward to having a bit of a break but that’s not to say I’m not ready for these last couple of games.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
