Chelsea midfielder, Christian Pulisic can reach double digits for goals and assists this season, Brad Friedel has said. He recently revealed that he is really expecting big things from his fellow American this season.
According to him, it was very hard for Pulisic to join Chelsea from the German league, especially because the Blues are a top club in England will little patience for settling in.
Brad added that now that Christian knows what to expect fully in England, his amazing talent will make him thrive.
His words, “It’s hard for any player to come into the Premier League and then it’s more difficult to come into the Premier League with one of the top sides in the league.”
“There’s a settling in period that’s always going to take place because the football’s very different than other countries that Christian has played in.”
“I thought he had a very good start to his Chelsea career, and he performed very, very well for the United States over the summer.”
“Now that he knows what to expect fully in England, he’s a tremendous talent and I think double digits in goals and possibly assists is achievable for him.”
“With the amount of chances Chelsea create, I expect him to be quite an important part of Chelsea’s team this season.”
“I think Christian’s bright enough and clever enough as a footballer to play alongside many different types of players.”
“Playing alongside somebody who’s just simply as good as Lukaku is going to help and Lukaku will at times have to attract more than one defender because of his size, pace and strength, which could give Christian the opportunity of being in a lot of 1v1 situations when he’s attacking, which he’s very good at as we know.”
“Having Lukaku will help any team and any player, and I think Christian will be able to take advantage of that without a doubt.”
“If Werner’s going to play then I think Christian’s style will be a little bit different because of who his playing partner is, but he’s equally good enough to play that kind of style as well.”
