Christian Pulisic has not had an easy path during his career as a professional footballer, as the American player he had to separate from his family at a very young age, Well, with a sister in high school, his parents preferred to divide, that is, his mother and sister stayed in the United States while he and his father flew to Germany for ‘Captain America’ to embark on his adventure through European football.

However, this was not the only difficulty that he went through, but rather, in an interview for GQ magazine, the American winger spoke about his physique, as in the Chelsea player’s own words “He was always very short and scrawny”, traits that may have been overweight during his development as a player.

However, this did not mean a problem for Pulisic, and it is that his ability was always above everything and he himself assured that the physical does not matterWell, soccer is a game that everyone can play.

The 22-year-old attacker was clear about this thanks to the Barcelona generation where players like Iniesta, Xavi and Messi himself, who did not stand out for their stature or musculature, but for their skill and intelligence when playing soccer.

“Growing up watching that Barcelona team that stood out for so many years, they really didn’t have many great players. And you’re like, ‘Wow, you don’t have to be big, you don’t have to have a certain body type to play soccer. “

Pulisic always trained both legs

According to Pulisic’s mother, the Pennsylvania-born player always tried to train both legs evenly, something for which he stands out at the moment, since his dominance of the ball with both feet is notorious.

“He said, ‘Okay, I’m going to do 50 with my right leg, now I’m going to do 50 with my left leg.. He would be very angry if he couldn’t get it. I was just working on it: left foot, left foot, left foot, hitting the top corner. ”
