Allardyce ‘staggered and shocked’ over Chelsea’s Pulisic decision

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.

Pulisic completed a £57.6million move to the Blues early on in January before being allowed to remain with the Bundesliga leaders for six months.

The Blues lost to Bournemouth 4-0 during the week, which represented their heaviest loss in the Roman Abramovich era.

They do have a wealth of attacking options following Gonzalo Higuain’s arrival from Juventus on loan, while they managed to hold on to Callum Hudson-Odoi.

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.”
