It had been a great evening for Borussia Dortmund on 10th November as their Christian Pulisic had beaten Bayern Munich by 3-2 at home in Signal Iduna Park and had secured first place in the German Bundesliga. The head coach – Lucien Favre had chosen that Jadon Sancho would play on the right and Brunn Larsen on the left. Marco Reus has also been successful in securing his role as the club’s no. 10 player. He is a disciplined captain and also an undisputed leader for the team.
It can be observed that Pulisic has struggled at times during the season but gave a good performance against the Union Berlin in the second round of DFB Pokal. Later it was followed by a great game against Atletico Madrid of UEFA Champions League. During this match, he won 3 out of his 14 duels and had only 2 successful dribbles in his 5 attempts. He had played in seven Bundesliga games but among them, he started in 4 games where he had scored one goal and assisted in two. The numbers reflect a downfall as the statistics show that last year he had 2.4 dribbles per game in 32 Bundesliga games while this year it came down to 1.9 dribbles per game.
All these reflect the possibility of Pulisic leaving the club after the season. Else he has to improve his game. His career can be said to be on crossroads right now. It is necessary to have a strong season at Dortmund.
