Winger opens up and reveals crazy money after signing with the Chelsea
Christian Pulisic has revealed he was blanked by several of his new colleagues on the team bus when he joined Chelsea.
Pulisic arrived from Borussia Dortmund just last summer as the man that could replace Eden Hazard, but despite some decent performances, he has not really made the impact that many had hoped, mainly down to his injuries.
He has struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League and in England, but he has now opened up and revealed that his team-mates didnt make it easy for him when he officially signed from Dortmund last lasts season.
“It was all pretty crazy what happened,” Pulisic told the 13&MEpodcast
“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.”
