Pulisic makes Dortmund pledge

8th January 2019, 06:52 by Michael Holland

Christian Pulisic has yet to speak to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri despite completing his £57.7m move from Borussia Dortmund.

Sarri revealed last week he was not aware the move was going ahead until it was done, with the 20-year-old United States international returning to Dortmund on loan for the remainder of the season.

Asked whether he has spoken to Sarri, Pulisic told ESPN FC: "No, nothing like that.

"Like I said, I've been here and playing with Dortmund the whole time and I've been focused here, but I'll be really excited once the time comes."

Chelsea had to pay a premium to acquire the sought-after winger despite him only having a year left on his contract but the American knows that will count for nothing when he turns up for pre-season training in the summer.

"You have to go in and earn your spot and prove you are worthy of being on the field," he added.

"I think they definitely see me in one of the wider areas, but I think they also know that I can play kind anywhere across the attack. So I'm ready for wherever I need to be filled in really."
