Christian Pulisic Makes Shocking Revelation about His Relationship with Thomas Tuchel
Chelsea’s winger, Christian Pulisic has made a revelation about his relationship with the Blues’ former manager, Thomas Tuchel.
The American made this known in his book, “My Journey So Far”, which was released on Tuesday, September 20th, 2022. According to Pulisic, he was disappointed with the way Tuchel treated him in the second leg of the semi-final game against Real Madrid during the 2020/21 football season.
What happened before that game was hugely disappointing for me. I’d had a really good first leg performance and our following match was against Fulham in the league. Tuchel told me that he was resting me for the second leg and as a result, I didn’t play a single minute in the Fulham game. Then on match day of the second semi, Tuchel tells me he’s changed his mind and he’s going with Kai [Havertz]. I honestly was dumbfounded and very disappointed. I thought that I’d earned a start and, most importantly, he had assured me previously I was going to start. So by the time he brought me on with about 25 minutes left, I was just so wound up.
Pulisic has not been able to break into the Blues’ first team under Tuchel, but he will hope that he can break into Graham Potter’s team as the season progresses.
