RB Salzburg manager Jesse Marsch has claimed Frank Lampard didn't originally rate Christian Pulisic because he is American.

The winger signed for Chelsea in January 2019 but did not arrive at Stamford Bridge until the summer, which coincided with Frank Lampard's appointment as manager.

Pulisic found himself in and out of the first team at the start of last season while injuries also hampered his progress. However, by the end of the campaign the 22-year-old was in electric form and was arguably the club's best player after the restart.
