Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic has sent a message to Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri following the 3-0 defeat to Tottenham in the Champions League.
Pulisic was signed by Chelsea in January before being loaned back to Dortmund, and he was in London this week as the Bundesliga leaders were beaten by Spurs.
Asked after the game about the dreadful recent run of his future club under Sarri, the USA international gave a strong backing to the coach and the squad to work things out.
Despite doubts over Sarri’s future at the moment, it seems the Italian tactician is at least being sent a message of encouragement from Pulisic.
The 20-year-old admitted it’s tough to understand Chelsea’s current bad results, but believes the quality is there for them to turn this around.
‘It’s tough for me to say,’ Pulisic was quoted by Goal when asked about CFC’s form.
‘They’ve had some tough results but I know they’re going to work it out.
‘They’re a great team with great players and a good coach. So they’re going to figure everything out.’
Chelsea fans will be pleased to see this positive attitude from their January signing, even if many will likely not agree right now that Sarri looks like the man to turn things around.
