Chelsea icon excited about ‘revelation’ Pulisic and makes big Eden Hazard claim
Christian Pulisic has been a “revelation” at Chelsea, says Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, who is getting very excited about the American.
Despite a very slow start to life at Stamford Bridge and many starting to doubt that he had the quality to be a success at Stamford Bridge, Pulisic has been amazing for Chelsea over the past few months and has shown just why the club wanted to complete a deal so hard.
There has been comparisons between himself and former star Eden Hazard, with many claiming that the American has the potential to go on and e a bigger influence on the side than the Belgian was at the club.
Now, Hasselbaink believes the 21-year-old is capable of topping Hazard’s achievements and etching his name into Blues folklore, with the former frontman telling Gentingbet: “Christian Pulisic has been a revelation.
“If you compare him to when Hazard first came to Chelsea, Pulisic has in my opinion done better. Hazard then went and became an absolutely brilliant star and carried everyone on his shoulders by winning games on his own. Pulisic can be the same – maybe even better.
“It’s not fair to compare them but Pulisic has done magnificently. I would just like him to be a little bit more clinical in terms of goals. I think he can score more goals.”
Pulisic is a very young player with a massive future in the game, so he needs to keep his head down and show the Premier League that he is here to become a superstar, and so far that is what he is achieving.
He will not be part of a Chelsea side that is getting many people excited, so now that there has been some new players signed by Frank Lampard, he needs to step up his game and show who is number one at the club.
