Premier League legend Thierry Henry has issued Christian Pulisic a stern warning urging him to wake up and take his career seriously after being an unused substitute in Chelsea’s 3-0 Champions League triumph over AC Milan.
The Arsenal icon is just pushing the USMNT talisman to show something’ during a rough start to the season.
The winger has only made one start in all competitions this season, but the arrival of Graham Potter as manager was anticipated to open the way for the American.
Unfortunately, he appears not to have appealed to the fancy of the new manager as Pulisic has only played 14 minutes since Potter’s debut against RB Salzburg and is at risk of being left out of yet another Chelsea manager’s starting lineup.
“At one point you’re gonna have to bring something on the table,” Henry said of Pulisic on CBS Sports.
“How many managers are not going to trust you? It’s gonna have to be you at one point. So find a way.”

Pulisic has now played under three Chelsea managers: Potter, Tuchel, and Frank Lampard, and his amount of starts has decreased year after year since the latter took over.
Pulisic has put up good figures for Chelsea, with 25 goals in all competitions, but he only played 13 Premier League games last season and was linked with a move away from the club last summer after the signing of Raheem Sterling.
In his memoirs, the American also stated that he was ‘dumbfounded’ by Tuchel’s decision not to start him in the 2020-21 Champions League semifinal second leg against Real Madrid, a match that Tuchel had previously assured him he’d start.
Neither has his condition improved under Potter.
