Sam Allardyce thinks Chelsea’s decision to send Christian Pulisic back on loan to Borussia Dortmund until the end of the season could be a mistake.
The Blues lost to Bournemouth 4-0 during the week, which represented their heaviest loss in the Roman Abramovich era.
However, Allardyce thinks letting the 20-year-old stay could mean it’s a while before Chelsea see the best out of him next campaign.
“I am staggered and shocked,” Allardyce told Sky Sports News.
“What if he does an ACL [anterior cruciate ligament] over there?
“You invest that much money and then you have the settling in period… next season, who knows, he might come in and struggle.”
