US Player of Year-Pulisic

Christian Pulisic

Christian Pulisic is the runaway victor of soccer's US Player of the Year, the youngest choice in the award's 27-year-history.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Christian Pulisic has told ESPN that National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James is one of his biggest sporting inspirations, while also discussing his own dunking skills.

Still, Pulisic has the upside to become the most talented and productive player in USMNT history, as least to this point. The attacker showed himself as a playmaker, picking up eight six assists in addition to three goals.

"I am playing every week in the Bundsliga, in the Champions League, against top teams", Pulisic told The Independent in November.

Pulisic won the US Soccer Federation's Male Player of the Year award last month.


Fellow BVB academy products Nuri Sahin, Mario Götze and Marcel Schmelzer had already made a similar journey and regularly line up alongside Pulisic for Die Schwarzgelben, and Pulisic says the opportunity afforded to home-grown players in a major European league is something unique.

Pulisic recalled dabbling in basketball before he joined the Dortmund youth setup in 2015, though his 5-foot-8 frame always meant soccer was the more realistic career path.

"It's a system that obviously I'd never really experienced in the U.S. and I would have never got something like this", he continued. "When you do that every week, you are going to improve".

Choosing soccer has worked out pretty well for Pulisic. His six assists led all players in the competition, though his excellent qualifying run wasn't enough to push the US into the 2018 World Cup, as the country disappointingly fell short for the first time since 1986.

"It's not about completely restarting". When you play against the best players, you're going to grow.

The Premier League big boys feel Pulisic is the ideal signing in a commercial sense, as well as landing a world-class talent. I'm learning a lot: "tactically, technically, gaining strength".
