USMNT Star Hails Milan Fans, Sets His Sights on Inter

Christian Pulisic has had a great impact with Milan and Serie A and is looking forward to his first Derby della Madonnina on Saturday. He gave an interview to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“It was love at first sight between me and the fans. I had never experienced this much passion. San Siro is one of the most impressive stadiums. It has an incredible atmosphere, even as an opponent. The game will be the perfect opportunity to find out who’s better between us and Inter.”

Pulisic is wary of the opponents’ traits.

“They are tough to face, as the Champions League final proves. If I had to pick one quality, I’d say that they can defend well sitting back, but, at the same time, they can score on the counter. As far as we’re concerned, Ruben Loftus-Cheek is great, and Tijjani Reijnders has a lot of quality. He’s special and a top-caliber player.”

Pulisic has a clear objective for Saturday.

“My dream is to score, and that goes for every attacker, or provide an assist, which is always nice. I can’t wait for the Derby and the Champions League. We got off to a great start, and I know we’ll do the best we can. We want to win, which is the most important thing in the end. We’re confident about the Scudetto. We have excellent players and the right mix of talent.”
