Borussia Dortmund midfielder Christian Pulisic says he not looking for a move to the Premier League any time soon, and has praised departing manager Thomas Tuchel for his impact on the 18-year-old’s career.
“It was the biggest league I followed as a kid and watched. The league has a lot of players, and teams, I liked in the Premier League,” Christian Pulisic told American outlet NBC Sports.
“Right now, it is not something I am looking to get into immediately or anything like that. I am happy at Dortmund and I am excited for the rest of my career.
“I was very thankful for everything he [Tuchel] did for me, giving me the chance at such a young age and getting a start to my professional soccer career.
“It is something I will always remember him for and I am very thankful for that. It is tough when it happens in professional sports but now he is gone I think the team will be just fine with whoever we end up getting.”
Tuchel’s last game in charge was a 2-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Pokal final, Pulisic’s first trophy as a professional and one that will linger long in his memory.
“It was really special, especially after a tough season like that with a lot of ups and downs,” said Pulisic. “To finish it with a trophy was just a really good feeling. Just to see the excitement on [my teammates’] faces after that was just really amazing to me.”
