AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli expressed his optimism about the partnership between former Chelsea stars Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Christian Pulisic, stating that he believes it will improve over time.
Pioli is delighted with the performance of both players since their arrival at AC Milan and is hopeful that they will develop a special connection on the field.
He particularly praised Pulisic’s versatility, acknowledging his ability to excel in various attacking positions.
In his own words to reporters, Pioli stated, “His (Christian Pulisic) physical condition is improving, we’ve only been working for two weeks.
“He can play on the right, left or on the frontline, he’s intelligent and has quality.”
“He (Ruben Loftus-Cheek) and Pulisic have been teaming up for only a few days, but they have features that fit together well. I’m happy with how they are moving, they need time to adjust.
“They are mature players who, however, change opponents, league and teammates. Of course, there are many things we can do better.”
The USMNT star’s transfer from Chelsea this summer for £17 million ($22m) is proving to be a success commercially for the Italian giants who have seen a massive increase in shirt sales in the United States.
Pioli’s side will be next seen in action on August 1 when they face Barcelona in a pre-season friendly.
