Leeds boss Jesse Marsch “would love to work with” American star Christian Pulisic in future

Christian Pulisic is “the best” American player in the world game right now, says Jesse Marsch, with the Leeds boss revealing he would “love to work with the Chelsea forward” at some point in the future.

That partnership is likely to take place at international level as the manager currently plies his trade at Elland Road, where a move for Pulisic would be intriguing but unlikely. Therefore, Marsch’s admission regarding Pulisic is taken as an indication that he hopes to take over the US national team in the future.

That dream is on hold for the time being as Marsch prepares his Leeds side – unbeaten in their first two games in 2022-23 – for a Premier League visit from Chelsea and Pulisic.

Much is up in the air over Pulisic’s future as the American is yet to play in the first three Premier League games of the season for Chelsea. He is believed to be investigating a loan switch away from Stamford Bridge, although that conversation has cooled in recent days.

Will Pulisic eventually work with Marsch?

Marsch, who inherited the reins at Leeds from Marcelo Bielsa in February, has told Whites: official YouTube channel : “Christian [Pulisic] is a big, big talent, the best in our country.

“The expectations of him are high, he has fulfilled many of those expectations. But with his talent, people ask for more.

“Every time I’ve trained against him, he’s scored.

“I have no negative criticism. I would like to work with him, be it with the national team in the distant future. He has created many firsts for American players.”

What does the future hold for Pulisic?

Pulisic, who led the USMNT to the 2022 World Cup finals, looks set to have a prominent role to play for his country in the years to come.

He is only 23 years old but has already won 51 caps.

Every USA national team coach will continue to visit him, but he’s hoping for more regular playing time at club level than he has of late.

Pulisic has made two appearances for Chelsea this season, totaling just 30 minutes, and has seen ties with Manchester United as speculation of a potential move elsewhere rises.
