Wow! New summer signing Pulisic tells Chelsea fans ‘i havent signed to replace Hazard’
New Chelsea signing Christian Pulisic has told the Blues fans that he is not here to replace the departed Eden Hazard.
Now it is no secret that Hazard was the man at Chelsea, he was the main source of goals and entertainment, he was the superstar. But he finally forced through a move to link up with Real Madrid earlier in the transfer window.
Chelsea acquired the services of Pulisic during the January transfer window in a deal that cost the club £58 million, with many believing that he was signed with the departure of the Belgian in mind.
But despite Hazard’s departure – and the fact they play in similar positions – Pulisic has come out and stated that he is not the replacement for Hazard, telling Sky Sports News: “I’m not here to compare or anything.
“Obviously Eden was amazing and he did so well for this club, as you could see last season and the whole time he’s been here. He was an incredible player.
“For me, it’s coming in as my own player, proving myself and doing the best I can to help this team.
“Right now it’s going in and helping the team whatever way I can. It’s just bringing an intensity into the training first of all and earning respect in the beginning.
“Then I want to make an impact as much as I can on the pitch.”
Pulisic is a very talented lad that will bring some real quality to the Chelsea side in the coming seasons, the lad has real potential.
Hazard is a superstar in the game and replacing him will not be an easy thing, Pulisic and the Belgian are two different types of player and the American will fail if many expect him to fill the boots of Hazard.
Noone can replace Hazard, Pulisic was signd to just help fill the void that was left by the Belgian after he finally got that dream move to Madrid.
So many fans should just give Pulisic time to adapt, as the English game is difficult to adjust too straight away.
