Chelsea fans will love this after Frank Lampard makes ‘worlds best’ claim about £58 million signing Christian Pulisic
Frank Lampard has once again praised the brilliant form of Chelsea midfielder Christian Pulisic.
The 21-year-old struggled to nail down a place at Chelsea, despite being tipped to be the ideal Eden Hazard replacement, and has already vented his frustrations at being dropped from the Chelsea starting line-up over the first few weeks of the season.
However, with a little love from Lampard, a little patience from the fans and his determination to prove that he is worth that £58 million, Pulisic has been in terrific form for the Chelsea over the past few weeks, and his performances are getting many fans excited.
The American has chipped in with a number of goals and assists over the past few weeks to stake a claim in the hunt for that Champions League spot in the Premier League, and after helping Chelsea pick up a 2-1 win over Aston Villa during midweek, Lampard has once again praised the winger.
He told the Chelsea website: ‘He is playing really well. He can score more, we have a player in Christian who is someone who is really exciting us but when you see this type of player, you see another level which is goals and assists and he has the ability to go on to that extra level which is the top level of world football.
‘At the moment he is doing really well and hopefully that will be the next part of the progression.’
Look at the end of the day Lampard has to pick the side that he feels best suits his style of play right now, and although Pulisic is a very gifted young man, he is still adapting to the English game whereas many of his rivals are already adjusted to the Premier League.
This performance showed Chelsea fans, and the media, just why the Blues were so keen to wrap up a deal for the American and he now needs to push on and carry on impressing in that Chelsea shirt in order to keep his place in the side.
Being at Chelsea means that Pulisic will be in the headlines on a weekly basis, especially as the Blues are seeking that next big superstar after Eden Hazard FINALLY managed to secure a transfer deal to Real Madrid during the summer window.
So as we said, he needs to keep his head down and work hard, and eventually he could be become a world class winger.
