MOST COMMENTED

“Christian has had to grow up in an adult soccer world very quickly. He’s 18. He’s not a 30-year-old man understanding all the problems in the world. What he’s experienced from a sporting perspective had been very much accelerated, and he’s learning a lot about life at a tender age. I personally don’t know how he’s doing it. He’s a good kid. He’s been embraced by Dortmund, and that has helped all the players get through this week.”

-- Mark Pulisic, father of 18-year-old American Christian Pulisic, who was on the Borussia Dortmund bus when explosives went off before its UEFA Champions League match against Monaco. Mark Pulisic, the Rochester Rhinos assistant coach, says they were blessed that Christian’s mother, Kelley, was visiting Christian in Germany and was there to support him that evening. (SI.com)

    It is a hard move for a kid. Did he speak any German before he got there? However there are a lot of free spirited young women there. I am sure they will be more then willing to help make his transition easier ;)

    Great question nick. Landon did not have his dad with him in Germany,but christian does. Having your dad around helps beyond anything Landon had.
