Last January, Christian Pulisic was transferred to Chelsea. The "blues" left him on loan at Borussia Dortmund until the end of the season. This summer he joined the London team and many were waiting to take the place of Eden Hazard.
The American had a dream to play in the Premier League, but adapting to the new requirements is not easy. His performances are unsatisfactory, forcing Frank Lampard to use him sparingly. The 21-year-old sits on the bench and played ten minutes in the recent game against Southampton. This was his first appearance in the Premier League since August.
Of course, Christian Pulisic is not at all happy with this situation. According to reports in England, the young winger is considering a loan somewhere in order to have games on his feet.
The information says that he wants to stay in London as a loan would be a setback, but with the presence of Willian, Odoi and the young Mason Mood, the opportunities he will get will not be many. For his part, Lampard has stated that he normally considers the player, but he cannot put him in the position of players who are in a better situation. Even if it cost the club millions.
Zidane: "He's a great footballer"
Zinedine Zidane found his own Paul Pogba in the face of the young Federico Valverde.
Zinedine Zidane desperately wanted to acquire Paul Pogba. Throughout the summer, Real Madrid made efforts to bring the French midfielder to Madrid. Despite the desire of the footballer himself, Manchester United denied all the blows.
The "love" of "Zizou" with Pogba was such that the "Queen" did not proceed with another transfer. Perhaps this indicates the team's intentions for the future. However, a footballer with different characteristics from Kroos, Montrich and Casimiro was pivotal for the plans of the experienced coach.
In the recent game against Granada, Fede Valverde played his best game with the Real Madrid jersey. Journalists covering the team's report asked Zinedine Zidane several questions. "Fende always tells me he's ready. He is an excellent footballer ", were his words.
In Madrid, they believe that Valverde can tie in well with Casimiro and Kroos at the moment when Luka Modric has entered the west of his career. The Uruguayan has managed to become a key player in the rotation and is currently Zidane's big bet.
The "Queen" will have multiple profits if the 21-year-old midfielder works properly. Initially, Real will have won a player who was considered a key player and at the same time will be able to take better advantage of Luka Modric.
The case of Luciano Spalletti "sank" permanently

Marco Silva has a negative record
Former Olympiacos coach has the worst score per game after Walter Smith's tenure (1998-2002).
