Mateo Kovacic's wordless reaction after seeing Christian Pulisic's new haircut
Christian Pulisic has taken to social media to show off his new haircut while away with the US national team.
The 23-year-old embraced his new look on Instagram, with Chelsea teammates having their say, and even poking fun at the American.
Pulisic has enjoyed a successful international break with the US so far, with a win and a draw against Morocco and Uruguay respectively.
American national media were full of praise for their poster boy in the victory over African opposition, as he starred in his 65-minute appearance.
Now the US international has shown off his new haircut on Instagram, but it only gained mixed reviews from Chelsea’s stars.
English stars Mason Mount and Trevor Chalobah seemed to compliment the forward’s new look, however midfielder Mateo Kovacic was less impressed.
The Croatian reacted with two facepalm emojis, leading to a jovial response from Pulisic.
He said: “I did it just for you” with the pair interacting despite being away on international duty.
Kovacic has been representing Croatia during the Nations league fixtures, with the former World Cup finalists bouncing back from defeat to Austria with an impressive draw against France. The Chelsea midfielder started both games.
While the pair are clearly enjoying a good relationship at the moment, rumours are suggesting the American’s time at Stamford Bridge could be coming to an end.
Reports have suggested that Chelsea have received no indication from the forward that he will commit his long-term future to the club, with speculation that he is frustrated with his lack of game time.
Pulisic has unfortunately become a by-product of Thomas Tuchel’s frantic search for an effective attacking formation, with him even being force into wing-back at times to get minutes, a position he has proven to not be a natural at.
With momentum gaining in interest for winger Ousmane Dembele, it may be advisable for the American to move on to find regular minutes as a starter.
With a home World Cup scheduled for when the 23-year-old will be in his prime, the poster boy of the US national team will be desperate to fulfil his potential in time for the grand occasion.
