‘I loved Rooney’ – Chelsea star admits he was a big Manchester United fan

Manchester United are interested in signing Chelsea star Christian Pulisic in January and the Americans winger has previously admitted he was a big Manchester United fan.

“I was a big Manchester United fan when I was younger,” he told ESPN in 2017.

“I loved to watch [Wayne] Rooney. I wouldn’t say I’m a similar player, though.

“I think his passion for the game is something you don’t see much in players. That’s what I loved about him.”
