Former United States defender Alexi Lalas claimed his fellow American Christian Pulisic is “being wasted” by Chelsea as he blasted the Blues’ transfer business last summer.
Lalas – who made 96 appearances for his country – was speaking on his State of the Union podcast after Chelsea were comprehensively beaten at home by Manchester City.
He said: “Here’s the problem. The way we’re talking about this performance [against Man City] from Christian Pulisic is of a player who shines despite the fact that he is not playing with the best players, or is playing against vastly superior opposition and still being able to show.
“This is Chelsea with all the talent they have and all the money they have spent.
“I’ll say it right now, Christian Pulisic is too good for this Chelsea team. His talents are being wasted right now at Chelsea, with this Chelsea team that they have.”
