Chelsea new signing Christian Pulisic, has joined up with his teammates on their pre season tour in Japan, and the USA international let out a few on what fans should expect in the new season.
Pulisic has a huge boot to fill, with the £58 million signing under the pressure to replace former club talisman Eden Hazard, – who left the Stamford bridge en route to the Santiago Bernabau this summer.
The 20-year-old is reeling to challenge with his new club, and believes he has what it takes to improve the team in Eden Hazard’s absence.
“I think I have a lot of speed and creativity that I can bring to the game; quickness and different attacking abilities that can really help the team,” Pulisic said.
“I think I have some tools that can really do well in this league [Premier League]. I just can’t wait.”
Christian Pulisic was surely looking forward to featuring alongside Eden Hazard, prior to the Belgian’s move to Real Madrid. Nevertheless, the former Dortmund man is happy to join the blues and admitted he was thrilled to be working with a manager like Frank Lampard.
“When I think of this club, there’s a lot of great players that come to mind,’ he continued. “I grew up watching Frank Lampard and all of those guys at the top of their game in the Premier League and in the Champions League.
“To me, Chelsea were always one of the biggest teams and now to be playing here, it’s really come full circle from that moment. It feels amazing.”
