Tuchel 'worried' about Pulisic fitness as he urges USMNT not to overplay Chelsea winger

The United States star has suffered from a number of niggling injuries during his time at Stamford Bridge


Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel admits he is “worried” about the fitness of Christian Pulisic and has urged USMNT boss Gregg Berhalter not to overuse him during the upcoming international break.


Tuchel says Pulisic still feels some pain as he works his way back from a persistent ankle injury that has sidelined him since August.

The U.S. team captain made his comeback as a substitute in the midweek Champions League win in Malmo before another appearance off the bench in Saturday’s Premier League draw against Burnley, raising hopes that he will be fit and firing for crucial World Cup qualifiers against Mexico and Jamaica.
