Tuchel wishes Pulisic and Kante to return injury-free from the international break

LONDON: Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel hopes Christian Pulisic and N’Golo Kante will return from the international break without injuries, and said the two have not recovered 100% so far, despite calls from France and the United States. Kante has just returned from injury and has scored 85 minutes for the Premier League leaders in a 1-1 draw with Burnley over the weekend, while Pulisic only played four games in all competitions in this season due to an ankle injury. “We have prepared this duo for the past two weeks, but they will be participating with their national teams in the international period and I hope they will have the opportunity to participate for some time to raise the bar before returning,” Tuchel told reporters. I also hope they don’t get hurt anymore. “Tuchel urged US officials not to over-rely on 23-year-old Pulisic when they face Mexico and Jamaica in World Cup qualifiers.” Pulisic obviously wants to get back to playing, but it depends on how we deal with this because we are afraid that he will come back or suffer a new injury … The previous injury still hurts him but he really wants to play again and so does the club and we are a little worried about his condition .. I hope he is not overwhelmed by the feelings and the desire to lead his country to a very important victory in his career? I hope that everything goes well and that this international participation will help him to come back stronger ”. (Reuters)
