Everyone at Chelsea would like to wish Christian Pulisic happy birthday but we aren’t the only ones looking to send him some birthday cheer!
We asked some of Christian’s favourite sports teams if they could join us in making his birthday extra special and they generously obliged.
Pulisic is a big fan of the NFL’s New York Jets, the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers and the NHL’s New York Rangers. As a native of Hershey, Pennsylvania, those are the teams from the surrounding area that he chose to support.
As a special present to him, players from each of his favourite teams filmed themselves wishing him a happy birthday. The Jets’ Le’veon Bell, Jamal Adams and Leonard Williams kick off the video, sending their birthday wishes and suggestions for how to celebrate. Next it’s the 76ers’ Tobiah Harris wishing Pulisic a happy birthday and extending him an invite to a game when he can make it. Finally, the Rangers’ Lias Andersson and Mika Zibanejad send their best wishes, and that they hope to see our young American at one of their games soon.
Christian was elated with the present. '[Those are] all my teams man, we have the Sixers, the Jets and the Rangers. [There are] some awesome players on there, guys that I look up to. It's cool to get a birthday wish from them. I appreciate it, thank you guys so much!' he happily exclaimed.
Thank you to the New York Jets, Philadelphia 76ers and New York Rangers for helping to make Christian's 21st birthday one to remember!
