Former Premier League goal-king, Thierry Henry has warned Chelsea forward, Christian Pulisic to prove his worth in a bid to force his way into the starting eleven.
The 24-year-old USA international has continued to struggle to secure a regular role even after the sack of Thomas Tuchel as he is yet to start the last three games since Potter was appointed.
Pulisic has openly admitted to being frustrated at the club following his lack of playing time during Tuchel’s reign.
However, Arsenal legend, Henry urged the former Borussia Dortmund star who was left on the bench in Chelsea’s 3-0 win over AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday evening, to start making an impact at Stamford Bridge.
“At one point you’re going to have to bring something to the table, I know I’m repeating myself but it’s true,” Henry told CBS Sports.
“How many managers are not going to trust you? It’s going to have to be you at one point. So, find a way.
“At one point, show us something, and what you can do, and maybe he’ll be fit for the World Cup and the US team.
Style of play
Following his promotion to the Dortmund first team, FourFourTwo writer Andy Mitten wrote that the Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel “saw the potential – the speed, sharpness, strength, sublime fitness and mature decision-making that belied his age.” Tuchel called Pulisic “the kind of guy who’s very self-confident, shows his talent on the pitch, and doesn’t show any nerves under pressure – which is a wonderful combination.” Pulisic’s Dortmund teammate Nuri Şahin said, “He’s fearless […]
He has so much speed, but what I like most is his first touch. When he gets the ball, his first touch opens up a huge space for him even if there’s no space.” Since the 2018–19 season, Pulisic was most often deployed on the wing for Dortmund, and this has continued at Chelsea. Because of his style of play, Pulisic is often subjected to fouls by opponents.
