Chelsea new boy Christian Pulisic has been given an extended break after a furious chasing of Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga — Dortmund finished 2 points behind Bayern, who secured their six-billionth league title — and before joining up with the U.S. Men’s national team for the Gold Cup.
So what’s a fella to do? How about keeping his skills sharp by doing a bit of juggling with his mother in the kitchen? As you would.
I’m gonna go ahead and claim that the only reason I’m not an ultra-talented footballer with an entire nations’ hopes resting on my shoulders is because my mother would never allow this indoors, let alone the kitchen. Oh, what could have been!
Both of Christian’s parents, Kelley and Mark, played football at university, while Mark also played professional in the NPSL (indoor soccer!) and later went into coaching (and podcasting!) as well. The 20-year-old however credits his mom for the skills, except probably that wayward left-footed touch that ended the sequence.
To the weak-foot drills, Christian!
