Christian Pulisic is savoring the “incredible” sensation of scoring his inaugural goal for AC Milan at San Siro after completing a €20 million transfer from Chelsea during the summer of 2023.
Christian Pulisic, who spent four years at Stamford Bridge, has made a positive impact in Italy, tallying seven goals and six assists in 26 appearances.
Pulisic marked his Milan debut with a goal away at Bologna and continued his scoring form by finding the net in his first appearance at San Siro against Torino on August 26.
He has told Serie A’s official YouTube channel of that experience: “You know always remember those moments, your first goal at a new club. I was very excited to score and the first at San Siro was incredible. The passion of all the fans, to hear them yell your name, of course it’s a special feeling.”
Pulisic, appreciated by Milan supporters for his work rate and effectiveness in front of goal, is relishing his time in Italy, having left behind the unpredictable weather of the English capital.
“I’ve settled in here, I think Milan is a great city. I’m doing my best trying to learn the language, getting used to the culture, the food has been great, everything about Italy is super nice. It’s definitely an improvement in the weather, compared to where I’ve been before.”
Milan has secured victory in four out of five matches in 2024, alleviating some of the pressure on coach Stefano Pioli. Nevertheless, there is a possibility of a managerial change in the summer, and Pulisic, along with fellow United States international Yunus Musah, may find themselves playing under a different manager in the 2024-25 season.
