EPL: Gary Lineker speaks on Christian Pulisic becoming superstar for Chelsea, compares him with Jadon Sancho (Sports)


England ex-international and FIFA World Cup record holder, Gary Lineker, has said he believes Christian Pulisic has a “real chance” of making a big impression at the Stamford Bridge and could become a “superstar” for Chelsea.

Chelsea fans were raving about Pulisic, an American professional footballer, after he netted a tremendous goal for Borussia Dortmund in their German Cup game against Werder Bremen.

Pulisic will leave Dortmund in the summer after joining Chelsea for £57.6million at the start of January.

Speaking in a chat with Football.London, Lineker said: “I’ve seen quite a bit of him and I think he’s got a lot of talent. He’s not been an out-and-out regular in their side.

“He is talented, there’s no question about that.

“It’s good to see a young American talent because if he does become a superstar that will be a real lift for the game over the other side of the pond.

“He’s got a lot of talent and it will be interesting to see how he does at Chelsea.

“He’s got a real chance, but if I could pick one of them I would definitely go with Sancho.

“I prefer Jadon Sancho to be perfectly honest from what I’ve seen, which is quite a lot as I do watch a hell of a lot of football from all leagues like a geek!”
