Journalist gives ‘disappointing’ reaction after what happened to Milan star

Former Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic looked upset when he was substituted in AC Milan’s 1-0 loss to Juventus over the weekend.

Stefano Pioli sacrificed Christian Pulisic in the first half following Malick Thiaw’s red card, and ESPN host Sebastian Salazar believes he would have been upset after his substitution.

However, the American’s start to life in Milan has been positive.

Pulisic has played nine Serie A games and scored four goals since joining the Italian giants from Chelsea in the summer.

Christian Pulisic was distraught after being replaced against Juventus.

Salazar told ESPN FC’s Herculez Gomez about Pulisic’s recent withdrawal at the San Siro: “I don’t want to do the whole let’s read body language thing, but you saw him come off and even if he’s not mad at the manager, even if he kind of understands it, you could still get it from the player’s perspective.”

“It’s devastating to be the guy who gets sacrificed in that game.” I should have used the word disastrous instead. “I’m going to say disappointing.”


In Focus: Christian Pulisic is back to his best after swapping Chelsea for  AC Milan | LiveScore


Christian Pulisic is pleased with his move from Chelsea to AC Milan.

Pulisic does not appear to be missing Chelsea all that much. The 25-year-old recently expressed his delight at being in Milan.

It’s not surprising, given that Pulisic has been a regular this season under Pioli. It was a very different story at Stamford Bridge.

Last season, for example, the USA international made only eight Premier League starts.

He wasn’t always fit, but considering Chelsea signed Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke in January and already had Raheem Sterling, it probably didn’t matter. Pulisic has always had a difficult time breaking into and sticking in the Chelsea starting XI.

That is why a move to Milan, where he is currently flourishing, was beneficial to him.

Chelsea, on the other hand, have moved on, if they haven’t already. In addition to Mudryk, Madueke, and Sterling, Mauricio Pochettino has Cole Palmer at his disposal to play out wide.

A Pulisic leaving was probably in everyone’s best interests.
