Thomas Tuchel has sent a message to the USMNT over Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic: please, be careful with him.

Pulisic, 23, returned to action for Chelsea last week after almost three months out for the Blues. The American superstar first had a positive Covid-19 test result in August, then in September he injured his ankle in the USMNT’s win at Honduras.

After a handful of minutes for Chelsea over the last few weeks, Pulisic is now in the USMNT squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Mexico and Jamaica.

Following Chelsea’s draw at home with Burnley, Tuchel has had the following to say about Christian Pulisic flying halfway across the world to represent the Stars and Stripes.
