McKennie backs USA pal Pulisic to be 'great Chelsea signing'

Christian Pulisic is being backed for success at Chelsea.

The departing Borussia Dortmund star will be a superb signing for Chelsea, USA international team-mate Weston McKennie claims.

"Christian is the type of player who likes a challenge and likes to experience new things as well," McKennie, of Schalke, told Sky Sports.

"I think he'll be a great signing for Chelsea. He may not get it right away, he may get in and play you never know, but I think he'll be helpful for them in any way that they use him.

"I'm excited for him and I know he's excited to start that next chapter of his career and make an even bigger name for himself."
