Former Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic has described his first day at his new club Chelsea as “crazy” and talked about how he found himself right in thick of it as soon as he arrived in West London.
Christian Pulisic said “It was all pretty crazy what happened,I had to fly straight from my summer break right after the Gold Cup. I had one week off and I didn’t really get a summer. The team had already started pre-season in Japan so I flew straight there and I had to literally fly by myself and then met the team who had flown from London. I had to go straight to the hotel and the next thing on the schedule was to go straight to training. I was tired, nervous and didn’t know what to think but ‘I’m at Chelsea and this is insane’ I got on the bus, they had just arrived as well. Everyone is half asleep, I go and sit on the bus and nobody even noticed me. Nobody said anything. There were maybe one or two guys who said ‘hey hello’ and I was like what’s going on here? Those first couple of days of training I was nervous. You know how it’s like when you move to a new team. They’re nice guys off the field but to earn that respect you have to show on the field you have that ability, that’s just how it is.”
The 21-year-old American was signed for £58 million and flew to Chelsea just a week after playing in Gold Cup and immediately jetted off to Japan with his new club.
