Journalist: Potter really wants to transform 24-year-old's time at Chelsea

'I'm told': Graham Potter really wants to transform £150k-a-week player's time at Chelsea so far - journalist

Graham Potter reportedly wants Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic to succeed under him at Stamford Bridge.

Pulisic, who joined the Blues back in 2019, has endured quite a turbulent ride so far in English football.

Despite some patches of brilliant individual form, the 24-year-old player has had quite a tough calendar year so far where he’s struggled for regular starts.

Peter Schmeichel has recently urged the £150,000-a-week American winger to try force a move away from West London to play more often.

Potter wants Pulisic to succeed

Journalist Dean Jones has shared information he’s been told about the Chelsea attacker.

Apparently, Potter hopes to transform Pulisic’s fortunes at the club and to get him back in favour.

Potter has only started him in two of his nine games since he became Blues head coach, but did start him in this week’s impressive 2-1 win over Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League group stages.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT about Pulisic’s future, Jones said: “I think it really depends on how Pulisic’s next couple of months pan out, both with Chelsea and at the World Cup, to be honest.

“We’ve seen a good performance from him recently under Graham Potter, and I’m told that Graham Potter would love this to work out and for him to be able to turn around his fortunes at Chelsea. But ultimately, Pulisic can’t wait around that long for that to happen.”

Let’s see in the next few games if Pulisic is given the opportunity to build on his latest performance.

He’s a wide player that can bring a lot of creativity and quality to the Blues XI, something he can do in a number of positions as well.

However, it’s just felt like throughout 2022 he’s slipped further and further down the attacking pecking order.

The change of management has given the squad a new dynamic, especially as Potter is rotating his XI a lot during the first month in charge.

Many Chelsea fans feel like Pulisic’s time with them has come to its conclusion due to too many inconsistent display, but perhaps there could still be a revival under Potter. For certain, stranger things have happened in the past.
