Pulisic linked to Liverpool

Currently on international duty with the USA senior team, 17-year-old Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic sat down for an interview with ESPN this week.

Having broken into the first team at Dortmund last season, the teenage sensation was linked with a move to Liverpool throughout the summer.

It was reported that Liverpool submitted an £11m bid for Christian Pulisic over the summer.

Loves Man United and Wayne Rooney

However, Christian Pulisic told ESPN that he grew up supporting Liverpool’s arch rivals Manchester United and admitted to being a big fan of captain Wayne Rooney.

Who’s influenced you as player?

“I was a big Manchester United fan when I was younger, so I loved to watch Wayne Rooney,” said Pulisic.

“I wouldn’t say I’m a similar player, though. I think his passion for the game is something you don’t see much in players. That’s what I loved about him.”

At least someone out there still has some kind words to say about Wayne Rooney.
