Leicester City legend Gary Lineker has admitted that he admires Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic.

Pulisic’s Chelsea career has been filled with highs and lows, but the American has continued to show glimpses of how much of a top player he can be.

Gary Lineker is backing Pulisic to become a superstar as he hails the talent of the 23-year-old American.

Lineker said: “I’ve seen quite a bit of him and I think he’s got a lot of talent. He is talented, there’s no question about that.

“It’s good to see a young American talent because if he does become a superstar that will be a real lift for the game over the other side of the pond.

“He’s got a real chance, but if I could pick one of them I would definitely go with Jadon Sancho.”
