Chelsea and USMNT star Christian Pulisic explains why has two phones
| Last updated
Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has explained why he has two phones he uses regularly.
The 24-year-old endured a tough season in what was a miserable 2022/23 campaign for Chelsea after they finished in lowly 12th place.
The United States captain managed just 813 minutes in the Premier League under four different managers and scored just once in all competitions.
He's been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge but recently admitted that he has deleted social media from his phone so is unaware of the rumours online.
However, in a recent interview with the Men In Blazers podcast, the former Borussia Dortmund man revealed that he actually has a two-phone system.
He has a main phone which is primarily for friends and family, as well as a secondary device that has his social media on.
"There's no way to completely avoid it, it's always there," Pulisic told Herculez Gomez when asked how he deals with abuse and negativity.
"On my main phone that I walk around with I literally just have my friends family contacts and I try to keep the social media all off my main phone.
"You can read 100 nice things about you, but you hear that one bad thing and just brings you down. And that's just something that we all go through, but it's just about trying to avoid it and just stay level."
Pulisic, who signed for Chelsea for £58 million in 2019, does look set to move on this summer and the latest update is that AC Milan are the frontrunners for his signature.
ESPN say Pulisic has an agreement in principle to sign for AC Milan on a long-term contract but the sticking point is the fee.
Chelsea want around €25 million for Pulisic but Milan are only prepared to play between €15 million and €18 million.
