Allardyce shocked that Chelsea allowed Pulisic to stay at Dortmund
Former England national team coach Sam Allardyce admitted that he was shocked by Chelsea’s decision to postpone the move of Borussia attacking midfielder Christian Pulisic after paying £58 million.
As you know, Pulisic’s transfer became the most expensive in the winter transfer window, but Christian will join the Blues only in the coming summer.
Big Sam does not understand why Chelsea paid such money and then allowed the 20-year-old American to stay at Dortmund. Allardyce fears that it will be a disaster for the London club.
Sam’s main fear is that the player could get injured at Borussia. What will Chelsea do if Pulisic tears cruciate ligaments in Germany? When you invest so much money you cannot wait until the end of the season, wondering whether the player will play well after the transfer or not.
We add that Pulisic scored three goals and gave 3 assists for Borussia Dortmund in 19 matches of the current season.
