's father criticizing his lack of playing time at



Pulisic dad Mark recently posted a tweet that was subsequently deleted which read: “The sad thing is he loves the club, teammates, and London... puts his heart and soul into being a pro. Onwards and upwards my boy... big six months ahead.”

"I'm not concerned if a father says a player loves me or not. I am not concerned about that, for sure,"

Tuchel said.

"It's a normal thing.

"Every manager, we have our reasons to choose a line-up and have our reasons to go for players in the first 11. You will never see, in this kind of level of competition, happy faces from players that are not selected.

"Between Christian and me, there exists zero problems. He had a fantastic training week so far, he has a huge impact from the bench in some matches.

"I didn't even know [about] it [the tweet]. I don't want to get affected by it in my judgement, it has nothing to do with it.

"The players, in the end, are responsible to be and stay in the team. I will do my best to do the right judgement. Am I always right? For sure not. Is it always fair? For sure not.

"This is what you sign up for in a club like Chelsea. I haven't experienced the same reaction from Christian lately, it was actually the opposite – very strong, very positive in the last weeks.”

Pulisic has not started a Premier League game for almost two months and featured as a substitute in last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Everton.
