Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic outlines his ‘big target’ for the 2021/22 campaign

Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic outlines his ‘big target’ for the 2021/22 campaign

Christian Pulisic’s Chelsea stint

Christian Pulisic would link up with Chelsea in the summer of 2019, after spending the second half of the previous campaign back on loan with Borussia Dortmund.

Since joining Chelsea, the American has showcased patches of quality, but has never really had a consistent run in the Blues’ starting eleven.

Pulisic did enjoy a purple patch at the end of 2019, and then again at the back end of the same campaign.

This past season, however, the attacker never really managed to put together a decent run, and only featured in 27 league games, in part due to injury issues.

Across these appearances, the American scored four and assisted two, a total he is no doubt keen to improve upon this season.

Pulisic’s big target

However, if Pulisic is to do so, he will need a consistent run in the Chelsea team, a tall task when considering the attacking talent Thomas Tuchel has at his disposal.

It is of course also difficult to secure regular minutes when you are unable to stay fit.

In turn, during a recent interview, the 22-year-old revealed that a major personal target for the forthcoming campaign is to stay healthy, and be available for selection as often as possible:

‘Staying healthy is definitely a big target of mine, and trying to be available as much as I can to continue to help my team and make a big impact.’

Pulisic also opened up on his struggles during the Covid-19 pandemic:

‘At the start I wasn’t playing as much as I would like, but it just forced me to train hard, to show why I want to be a part of this team.’

‘Your mental health is important. It’s about being content with who you are as a person and, for me, getting away from the game and finding the right balance.

‘I’m always having to fight with everything that is going on with football, but also stepping away and making sure my mind is in a good place and I’m really just happy.’
