EPL: You need to go now – Richards tells Chelsea forward to leave Stamford Bridge

Micah Richards advises Pulisic to leave Chelsea now



Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards has told Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic to leave the club in the summer.

The USA international made just 30 appearances for Chelsea across competitions last season, scoring one goal and providing two assists. 

The 24-year-old only started only 10 of those games for the club he joined in 2019 from Borussia Dortmund.

Since joining the club Pulisic has managed to score just 26 goals and provided 21 assists in 145 matches.

Despite showing his quality at the start of his career at Stamford Bridge, however, the American has seen a decline in form in recent seasons.

Richards recently told CBS Sports, “He needs to go somewhere where he needs to be the main man. When he plays for the US he plays differently, he feels like the main man. He’s a lot better than he shows and he needs to be more consistent.”

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher also added to Richards’ comments:

“He has to move on now. Twelve months ago was the perfect time. For his own career it would be better if he could move on.”
