Christian Pulisic admits the opportunity to link up with Chelsea was too good to turn down
United States international, Christian Pulisic has revealed the chance to join Chelsea was undoubtedly undeniable as he really favoured a move to the Premier League.
Pulisic (21) joined Chelsea in 2019, after a successful spell in the German Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund following an impressive progress, having broken through under Jürgen Klopp.
Discussing his career path with BT Sport, Pulisic said: “I always wanted to play in Europe”
“Going to Dortmund was definitely a perfect first step for me. It was awesome, and I learned so much. I grew up there – I went over there when I was 15.”
“Now, to be here and come to the Premier League when I was 20, I think it all worked out very well so I’m really happy with the path.”
“I was confident and felt like I had a good couple of years in the Bundesliga, and obviously with the opportunity to come to a club like Chelsea, it was just something I couldn’t turn down.”
“I just felt like the timing was perfect and I’m really happy that I made that choice.”
The 21-year old has made 16 Premier League appearances for Chelsea, scoring 5 and assisting twice.
