‘That was where I feel like I learned so much, and that’s where my passion for the game grew so much, so to give something like that was kind of what I imagined, and it’s even better than I ever thought it would be. It looks really cool.’
‘It was always something that I think I wanted to do,’ Pulisic said. ‘Now that I am able to support this club, it was just something that meant a lot to me. It was close to my heart, obviously playing for Classics growing up.’
