Roy Keane exhorts Chelsea star to produce regularly after good performance in 2022 FIFA World Cup, saying, “He’s certainly a talented player.”

Former Manchester United skipper Roy Keane has urged Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic to find more consistency in his game following an encouraging display at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The former Borussia Dortmund winger made his FIFA World Cup debut on November 21 for the USA against Wales in a 1-1 draw.

The Chelsea attacker made quite an impression as he produced a brilliant assist for Timothy Weah who did equally well to open the scoring. The USA looked destined to secure all three points but Wales equalized late through Gareth Bale from the spot.

Keane has lauded Pulisic as a talented player but urged him to do better at club level. Keane has insisted that Pulisic has no shortage of talent in him but lacks consistency.

The Manchester United legend has also claimed that the attacker needs more luck with injuries. He said (as quoted by Football.London):

“He’s obviously got his injury problems. He’s obviously a talented player, he’s got a good record at international level.”

“So it will be interesting to see how he does in the tournament because he’s got that potential but we need to see more of it. He needs more luck with the injuries but he’s obviously a talented boy.”

Since his move to Chelsea back in 2019, Pulisic has struggled for regular playing time and has also had poor luck with injuries.

The USA international started well at Stamford Bridge under Frank Lampard but saw his stock fall following the arrival of Thomas Tuchel. His struggles for playing time have continued under new manager Graham Potter as well as he has been linked with an exit from the west London club.

As reported by SI, the attacker has emerged as a target for Newcastle United who are enjoying themselves this campaign and are currently placed third in the league table.


Pulisic has played just 607 minutes of football this season for Chelsea, having scored just once and provided two assists.
