New AC Milan signing, Christian Pulisic has come out to explain why he took Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s famed No.11 shirt at the San Siro. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, knowing that a legend like Zlatan wore the number previously is a fantastic opportunity for him to also prove his worth at his new club.
Pulisic added that he cannot compare himself to the Swede though, and he definitely cannot fill the void he left.
His words, “It’s a number I like. I know that a legend in the form of Ibrahimović wore it, and it’s a fantastic opportunity for me. I don’t want to compare myself to Ibra or fill the void left by such a great champion, but it was free and I chose it.”
“We have a very strong and competitive attack. In general, the team is full of talent. I’ll try to make a contribution in attack. I’ve often played out wide, especially on the right flank, but I can also cover other positions, like the attacking playmaker role. I’m a particularly strong dribbler, which helps me provide assists and score. It’ll be a pleasure to have Leao s a teammate; he’s just incredible.”
