CHRISTIAN PULISIC has taken to Instagram to show off his ball control skills with his mother as the duo performed kick-ups in the kitchen of their family home.

The American winger will link up with Chelsea in the summer after agreeing a deal to join the club from Borussia Dortmund for £58million in January.

And the 20-year-old has been honing in on his skills before he reports for pre-season duty with the Blues.

Enjoying a kickabout in their home, Pulisic and his mum Kelley kick the ball in the air to one another 22 times before the pacey forward messes up his return.

Known for his fancy footwork, Pulisic took to social media to joke he learnt everything there is to know from his mother.

Captioning the clip, he quipped: “And y’all thought I got it from my dad.”

Pulisic is no stranger to UK life having lived in England for a year when he was seven after Kelley moved the family to the country as part of a teaching programme.

The family ended up in the small village of Tackley – eight miles north of Oxford – with Pulisic joining local club Brackley Town.

It was in England that the USA international discovered his love for football.

He told the Daily Mail: “A lot of people don’t realise but it really brought on my passion for the game.

“After school every day, I was just out for hours in the park, playing with my schoolmates.


“That’s really where my love for the game started to come alive and that was a big part of my development.

“I just started to love it so much and I said: ‘Wow. I’m pretty good! I think I can do something with this game.’”

Pulisic has also revealed that Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang convinced him to join Chelsea after speaking to his former BVB team-mate.
