Christian Pulisic trolled with a tweet from five years ago after Chelsea hammered by Manchester United
CHRISTIAN PULISIC was trolled with a tweet he posted five years ago after Chelsea were hammered by Manchester United.
The former Borussia Dortmund star, 20, joined the Blues for £58m in January and was immediately loaned back to the Bundesliga side.
Pulisic got his first taste of Premier League action yesterday – and it could not have gone much worse as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side won 4-0.
He replaced Ross Barkley in the 58th minute and saw Anthony Martial score seven minutes later, Marcus Rashford net his second two minutes after that and Daniel James score on his debut with nine minutes to go.
No wonder, then, that gloating United fans trawled through Pulisic’s Twitter to look for something to troll him with.
And find it they did, pouncing on a message he posted from February 5, 2014, which read: “When you know you made a mistake..”
One person replied: “Still time to leave mate.”
Another responded: “German transfer window is still open mate you should request to rejoin Dortmund.”
‘NOT TOO LATE TO GET TO HEATHROW’
A fellow user posted: “Should’ve stayed at BVB.”
One comment read: “Not too late to get to Heathrow airport mate.”
Another wrote: “You just predicted the future mate.”
Mason Mount, 20, was picked in favour of Pulisic for the blockbuster clash at Old Trafford yesterday.
At Derby, in what was Frank Lampard’s first season in management, he had the Chelsea academy product on loan.
Mount netted 11 times last season and featured heavily for the the Blues in pre-season – impressing enough to start in the No10 role.
The decision meant no place in the starting line-up for Pulisic.
Lampard said: “Christian Pulisic is 20 years old and he’s come across from Dortmund. He will be a fantastic player for the club. He has got great ability. You saw little moments with his acceleration on the ball.

“But I have also got other options in midfield and in those areas, and I don’t want to stick Christian straight into the fire without trying to help him along the way.
“It was one of those games where I felt it was better to start with Ross [Barkley] and Mason [Mount], who have been very strong in pre-season, and bring Christian on.
“If the game had carried on at 1-0, or we were back in the game as we should have been, he would have been a great injection. In the end it was difficult for him because the game went quickly away from us.”
