Chelsea star Pulisic sends message to Liverpool boss Klopp and says thanks!
Chelsea star Christian Pulisic insists he will remain forever grateful to Jurgen Klopp for providing him with his big break at Borussia Dortmund.
Pulisic is still regarded as one of the finest talents in the game right now after turning into a superstar over at the Bundesliga with the German giants.
Yes his move may have not worked out, yet, like many had hoped but there are still many out there that believe he will come good and become a real superstar for the us.
The USA international’s potential was spotted by Klopp, who had just led a star-studded side containing the likes of Mario Gotze, Marco Reus and Ilkay Gundogan to the Champions League final at Wembley.
And now Pulisic has opened up and send a message to his former boss, Pulisc told the 13&MEpodcast: ‘The craziest thing is people don’t realise I started out in the youth teams over there. I was just working hard for that one opportunity I could get.
‘I was going to German school over there and I will never forget that one day I was in class and I looked at my phone and it was a text from my youth coach saying you are training with the first team tonight. The rest of the day I wasn’t even paying attention.
‘I couldn’t think of anything else. ‘I’m getting ready, going to training and it’s just unreal I was 16 or 17 and I’m going in the warm-up and there’s huge names at the time.
‘There’s Aubameyang, Marco Reus, Matts Hummels, Mkhitaryan. All these guys and they were just in the Champions League final the year before.
‘It’s like I’m going in and I’m just this 16-year-old kid. I was thinking just do my best. I was just so excited and I’m just thankful to Jurgen Klopp that he gave me that opportunity. I’ll take that with me forever and I’m really grateful.’
