How old is Christian Pulisic?

The Pennsylvania native was born September 18, 1998 – making him 20-years-old.

Pulisic began his youth footballing career on English shores at Brackley Town before returning to America to turn out fore Michigan Rush and PA Classics.

Thanks to a Croatian grandfather, the youngster was able to gain citizenship from the country, allowing him to move to Borussia Dortmund in Germany at 16-years-old without a work visa.

He had an offer to play for the Croatia national team – but turned them down in favour of playing for USA who he has represented 23 times.


Does Pulisic play for Chelsea or Dortmund?

Chelsea signed the American winger for nearly £58million, making him their third most expensive signing behind Kepa Arrizabalaga and Alvaro Morata.

Pulisic will not be seen on a pitch in blue until next season though, as he rejoins Borussia Dortmund on loan for the remainder of the campaign.

And that means he will face Tottenham tonight. He starts in a front three with Jadon Sancho and Mario Gotze.

What position does Pulisic play?

Pulisic is often deployed as a right winger for Borussia Dortmund – but can play on the left flank and as a centre attacking midfielder.

His pace and dribbling ability has given many Bundesliga defenders’ nightmares since making his debut in January 2016.

Pulisic has not always been a major goal threat, scoring just 10 goals in the German top flight – but is adept at setting his team mates up, producing 13 assists.
