first_imgEx-Chelsea striker ​Sutton: Lampard wouldn’t have signed Pulisicby Ansser Sadiq16 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Chelsea striker Chris Sutton does not believe that boss Frank Lampard would have signed Christian Pulisic.The American arrived at the club this summer, but his transfer was sealed in January with Borussia Dortmund.Pulisic has found it hard to earn game time at Chelsea, with the likes of Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Willian and Pedro preferred in the winger slots.And Sutton does not think the 21-year-old would have been a Lampard signing.”He has to prove himself,” Sutton told Radio 5 Live.”Frank Lampard has no agenda against him, he’s picking the best possible team to win games of football, that’s his job.”He wasn’t Frank’s signing, of course.”With [Callum] Hudson-Odoi and Mason Mount coming to the fore, he’s going to have a major issue getting into the starting line-up. I really do think that. I don’t see a way in for him at the moment.”Fifty-eight million, a lot of money to spend and it would be interesting to ask Frank now if he would sign him at this moment in time if he hadn’t signed him before? The answer to that, I think, is pretty obvious – he wouldn’t.”But, there’s a reason Chelsea spent the money on him, he’s still a young man and got enormous talent, he has to go out and show it. It’s good for Frank in terms of strength in depth.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img
