Borussia Dortmund Christian Pulisic has expressed his admiration for the Premier League, but insisted that he is content to ply his trade in the German Bundesliga.
The USA international has made a huge leap over the past year or so, and he is now an integral part on the BvB setup.
Pulisic earned 43 outings for the Dortmund giants across all competitions last season while netting five goals in the process. He also helped the German outfit clinch their first silverware in nearly five seasons after they beat Eintracht Frankfurt by a 2-1 scoreline in the DFB-Pokal Cup final.
Speaking to NBC, Pulisic admitted that the Premier League had a huge influence on his style of play as it helped to nurture his interest in the beautiful game, he said: “It was the biggest league I followed as a kid and watched. The league has a lot of players, and teams, I liked in the Premier League. Right now, it is not something I am looking to get into immediately or anything like that. I am happy at Dortmund and I am excited for the rest of my career.”
Thomas Tuchel played a huge role in trusting Pulisic into the first-team, and the teenager had some fond words to say about the head coach, who was dismissed late last month, he said: “I was very thankful for everything he did for me, giving me the chance at such a young age and getting a start to my professional soccer career.”
Pulisic has firmly established himself as a regular in the Dortmund setup, and it appears that he may stay put at The Westfalenstadion for a while before pushing for a bigger challenge. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was key towards recruiting Pulisic for BvB in February 2015, but he is likely to be left disappointed by the forward’s decision to remain in Dortmund.
