Pulisic says USMNT pressure too much. Liverpool could be worse!

Liverpool move for Christian Pulisic talked up

Christian Pulisic: The Hurt Won't Go Away Until I'm In a World Cup With US

A number of star players are constantly linked with a move to Anfield but reports suggest that Jurgen Klopp is ready to wait for the signature of the U.S. global.

United are not only interested in Pulisic's effectiveness on the pitch, but also off it. And Pulisic could make a lot of people excited about worldwide play again - even after the failure of missing the 2018 World Cup. I think what I learned and how I learned from going through when you're 17 until you're 19 and fighting everyday with other players - you're fighting for a pro contract, really - is something we definitely can learn from.

Pulisic has played with Borussia Dortmund since 2015. He said, "I am playing every week in the Bundesliga, in the Champions League, against top teams". I was the point guard - I was the smallest one always.

Pulisic has been on Liverpool's radar for more than a year, with head coach Jurgen Klopp hoping to lure the teenager from his former club.

The Independent report that Man Utd's owners are not prepared to let Pulisic, and all the marketing opportunities in the U.S. that will come with the youngster, slip through their grasp. "And thus I see Christian with us in the long-term".

At Old Trafford, the Portuguese manager is building a team full of youngsters, who can go on to rule Europe in years to come. I'm learning a lot: "tactically, technically, gaining strength". Liverpool, who already tried in in vain to sign him in 2016, and Manchester United are particularly keen to acquire his services in light of their American owners.

The most gifted USA player of his generation admitted he is still coming to terms with the burden of being considered the national team's talisman and most important figure.

"I would say that the expectations some Americans put on me is too much".

The Borussia Dortmund attacker was already looked at as one of the most important players on the US team despite being just 19 years old, and that pressure has only increased since the nation's World Cup miss. "I try to focus on the next week and the next game every time, focus on what I'm doing right now and just to continue to improve every single day". However, Mourinho's system at the club might not be able to get the best out of the 19-year old.
