Since the arrival of Tuchel as Chelsea’s head coach, Chelsea’s American superstar Christian Pulisic is yet a make a start for Chelsea in the Premier League.
The American winger is always introduced from the bench while sometimes, he isn’t even played.
Tuchel has admitted that most of his players deserve more game time because of their quality and effort they put in training including Christian but it is very difficult when it’s just three subs available in a Premier League game.
We have the perfect size of squad but the only thing I’m missing is the opportunity to use five subs. I have been saying it for years, I have so many players who are unhappy who I cannot reward. I have pushed for it [5 subs] at all clubs that I was coaching (Tuchel)
He also claimed Pulisic’s ability to influence the game form the bench is among the reason he doesn’t get into the lineup.
Speaking in his press conference ahead of our match against Leeds, Tuchel said Thomas Tuchel says Christian Pulisic was ‘unlucky’ at the beginning because of the impact he can have from the bench, but it’s Pulisic’s duty to show up when he gets called up – ‘he’s been positive’ in the last few days.
