Chelsea Signing Needs More Adaptation Time

US national team manager Gregg Berhalter has told the Chelsea fans to lower their expectations of new signing Christian Pulisic.

Gregg Berhalter is no stranger to American international Pulisic as he manages him in the US national team setup.

In his latest interview as monitored by the Daily Mirror, Berhalter told reporters that Christian Pulisic needs more time to adapt to the rigors of the Premier League at Chelsea.

Pulisic joined Chelsea from German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in the summer after the Blues paid around 57.1 million pounds for his transfer.

The young American attacker is the third most expensive player in the history of the club and he has been restricted to just two Premier League games though he has improved in recent games.

Christian Pulisic has three assists from the last three Chelsea games in all competitions.

The American forward came on as a second-half substitute in the last game against Dutch champions Ajax Amsterdam in the Champions League.

He provided the assist for the winning goal scored by fellow substitute Michy Batshuayi as Chelsea defeated Ajax Amsterdam 1-0 away from home.

The win took Chelsea ahead of their Dutch opponents at the top of Group H of the Champions League.
