Liverpool turned down chance to sign Christian Pulisic – now he could have handed them title to fans’ delight

LIVERPOOL once turned down chance to sign Christian Pulisic… and now may have just handed them their first-ever Premier League title.

Jurgen Klopp always spoke of his admiration for the former Borussia Dortmund star – whom he worked with at the Bundesliga giants.

Klopp once turned down the chance to sign Pulisic – now he might have clinched the Reds the title at Chelsea

But the Reds boss never made his move, so as to not disrupt his star front-three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Klopp instead signed a back-up player – rather than a star with regular first-team intentions – in bringing in ex-Stoke man Xherdan Shaqiri.

And it may have just reaped the ultimate rewards, as Pulisic scored the opening goal of Chelsea’s huge clash with Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s side needed to win in order to delay Liverpool’s charge – with anything less resulting in the Reds being crowned champions.

‘KLOPP MASTERCLASS’

Klopp’s side had demolished Crystal Palace just 24 hours with four fantastic goals to signal their intent.

But with just minutes left in the first half, Pulisic jinked his way through the City defence and slotted home the coolest of finishes to give the Blues the lead.

At half-time at Stamford Bridge, Liverpool fans were in heaven – thanking Chelsea in a rare show of love to their fierce modern-day rivals.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “Jurgen Klopp masterclass. Started off Pulisic’s career in Germany, declined signing him for Liverpool so that he could go to Chelsea for this exact moment.”

Another captioned a snap of Klopp patting Pulisic on the head back in their Dortmund days: “That’s my boy.”


Another praised sporting directer Michael Edwards, tweeting: “So Pulisic tries for a move to Liverpool only for Edwards to turn down the price so that he goes to Chelsea so that he scores the title winning goal against City?

“Michael Edwards, he’s done it again.”

A third joked: “Pulisic doing more for Liverpool than Gerrard ever did…”

Another simply said: “Pulisic. Liverpool legend.”
