Christian Pulisic is yet to start a game for over a month and Frank Lampard has told him to work hard to gain a spot.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard reveals that Christian Pulisic needs to work harder and improve his overall game to gain a starting eleven spot.
The USA International joined Chelsea from Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window for £56 million, but spent the second part of the season with the Bundesliga giants. He was signed by the current Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri, but the managerial change in the summer saw legend Frank Lampard taking over the hot seat.
The attacker arrived at Stamford Bridge as one of the exciting prospects in world football, but has struggled for game time. His last start came up against Sheffield United back in August end.
Pulisic said: “Not so much. He said to keep working and I have to improve myself in training and try to get back in the line-up,”
“In the end I got minutes again and I played well towards the end of the season, so I just have to get my head down and get to work.
“I knew it was going to be tough coming here. It is never going to be easy. I’ve got to grind out. I want to be back and be a part of the team and help the team win games.
“I want to play as many minutes as I can, that is really my goal, I want to be on the field.
“It is tough for me right now. I just have to continue to learn.
“Like I said, I want to be on the field really bad, I have to continue to work and prove myself to be there.”
Since signing for the club, Christian Pulisic has registered one assist and is yet to break the deadlock. The return of Ruben Loftus-Cheek will make life even tougher for the United States International, who intends to push for a spot in the starting lineup.
