Just as the Blues fans hoping to see Graham Potter and his squads team boost their chances in the UEFA champions league match as RB Salzburg in yesterday’s match with Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Salzburg in the Champions League on Tuesday, the USA winger, Christian Pulisic has been asked to leave the club.
According to the former Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher believes that the American star player should follow the footsteps of Timo Werner who left Stamford Bridge in the transfer summer and returned to back to RB Leipzig.
The German has returned to form since moving back to RB and Carragher feels this should serve as an example to Pulisic.
Werner scored his fifth goal of the season in the Champions League on Tuesday night as Leipzig beat Real Madrid 3-2.
Earlier in the evening, Pulisic was played as a right wingback in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over RB Salzburg.
Three years after moving to Stamford Bridge, Pulisic is still yet to firmly establish himself in his preferred role.
“One hundred per cent,” Carragher told CBS Sports when asked if Pulisic should see Werner as an example to leave Stamford Bridge.
“And I just think Pulisic is sort of at that stage now where there’s been a few managerial changes,” he added.
Carragher believes that even though the American is getting more time under Potter this season, it would be difficult for him to become part of the Blues’ recognized starting 11.

“But he’s been there a few years now, it hasn’t quite happened for him for whatever reason.
“But eventually you have to make that decision. I don’t think you can continue to be in that position that he’s been in for the last two or three years,” he added.
