Pulisic keen to put the 2022-23 Premier League campaign behind him.

Updated: Jun 10, 2023

Pulisic's time at the West London club has been blighted by injuries.

USA international Christian Pulisic has admitted that his 2022-23 season with Chelsea FC was a disappointment.

The Chelsea winger Pulisic said that he is just eager “to find my footing again and just enjoying the game because it feels like it's been tough to do that lately.”

It is no secret that the 24-year-old is seeking pastures new after a season that saw the West London club finish 12 in the English top-flight standings.

He scored just one goal and provided two assists in 30 appearances this season, starting only eight times in the Premier League.

With the campaign behind him, Pulisic spoke to reporters in California where he is training with the United States Men's National team for their upcoming Nations League games.

'It's been a really tough season for me personally and for our team of course at a club level,' Pulisic said, via ESPN.

'So, for me, it's just about coming in here and having a fresh start and being able to be a part of a team that hopefully can come out and win some games.'

'So, I'm really excited to be here and just to get some minutes on the field and just get back to being that confident player that I know I can be in and just find my footing again and just enjoying the game because it feels like it's been tough to do that lately.'

The United States take on Mexico in the CONCACAF Nations League semifinal on the 15th of June, and they'll also play the final or third place match after.

'Obviously, it's been an interesting journey at club level for me. I thought it was a great couple of years and the last couple of years just haven't gone at all how I've planned them to be,' Pulisic added.

'And right now my focus is obviously here with the national team. I'm just excited to get back to playing and just enjoy myself and do what I love to do out on the field. And from there, this summer, we're obviously going to have to see what happens.'

On reports linking him with a move away from Chelsea, the American replied: 'I don't keep any social media on my phone anymore so I probably don't see as much as you guys think I do. I don't know what's going on.

'People will text me sometimes and be like, 'you're going here?' And I'll be like, 'I didn't even know that.' So, they know more than me most of the time.'

'But I'm good man. My family is healthy and blessed. [...] I'm happy to be here with the boys. I'm great and I'm excited to play with these guys this week.'
