Chelsea Confirm Christian Pulisic Is Their New No.10
Pulisic, 21, enjoyed a successful debut campaign in England following his €64 million move from Borussia Dortmund in 2019. The United States international contributed 11 goals and 10 assists in all competitions last season and was nominated for the Premier League’s Young Player of the Year award.
Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic has been handed the No. 10 jersey ahead of the new season, the club announced on Thursday. The jersey was previously worn by Joe Cole, Eden Hazard and Willian who won the Premier League and European honours with the club. The forward’s performances after the Premier League restart helped Chelsea finish in the top four and he also scored in their FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal.
After being handed the No. 10 jersey, there will be more comparisons between Pulisic and Hazard but the American has said he wants to create his own history at the club.
Chelsea have strengthened this summer with the arrivals Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva. Frank Lampard’s side start their league campaign with a trip to Brighton on Monday
