Chelsea's new boy Pulisic wants to make the same impact as Hazard

Sports | 23 May 2019

Christian Pulisic says he wants to make the same impact that Eden Hazard has had at Chelsea and hopes to play alongside the Belgium superstar at Stamford Bridge.

The American signed a 5 1/2- year contract with Maurizio Sarri's team in January but was immediately loaned backed to Germany to finish the season at Borussia Dortmund.

"It is incredible to see what Eden can do," said Pulisic, 20. "He is a guy to look up to and what I would love to become."

But the 58 million (HK$576.7 million) signing appears unlikely to get his wish to play alongside Chelsea's star man, with Hazard persistently linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Pulisic, who scored four times in 20 league appearances last season for Dortmund, said he wanted to inspire young American footballers.

"I just want to be an established player and someone people respect, who is successful in this league. It is completely new to me and something not a lot of American players have experienced."
