Christian Pulisic has named N’Golo Kante as his favorite Chelsea teammate. The United States star claimed the Frenchman makes everyone smile and would do anything for his team.
Speaking on Complex’s GOAT Talk with Ben Chilwell, the two Chelsea players were asked who their favorite teammate was at the club. The American answered Kante, without hesitation. Pulisic said:
“He makes you smile every day you come in, he covers you, he runs for you, he’ll do anything for you. He’s a good teammate.”
Pulisic spoke about his desire to play more and was quoted saying:
“As far as right now, I’m obviously just focused on what I’m doing here. And I’m super excited to be here. And yeah, that’s it. Of course, I want to get more playing time. I want to be on the field as much as I can and be the sharpest I can be and fit as well.”
“And I think I still got a lot of games, but it’s always something that I’m working at and trying to be regular at club level as well to put myself in the best position to be fit when I come here with the national team.”
The 23-year-old played 21 matches in the league last season, starting in 13 of them. The forward scored six times and assisted twice, and would be keen to improve those numbers.
