Liverpool have to beat Bayern Munich in race for Borussia Dortmund No.22 star

December 6, 2017

German legend Lothar Matthaus believes that Bayern Munich must keep Christian Pulisic in Germany.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder has been heavily linked with Liverpool and Real Madrid this season, such is his growing reputation.

However, Matthaus believes that former club Bayern should sign the USA international as a replacement for Franck Ribery.

He impressed Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthäus so much on the day that as the German said in the interview with Sky after the match that once it’s time to replace Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery that the club should be knocking on Pulisic’s door.

“If Bayern eventually must find a replacement for (Arjen) Robben and Ribery, they must extend their feelers to Pulisic,” said the World Cup winner.

In defeat against Bayern, Pulisic was BVB’s outstanding player, with the manager Peter Bosz stating:

“He was our best man, who played very well and fought to the end.”

Bayern are no stranger to poaching Dortmund’s top stars. Robert Lewandowski, Mario Gotze and Mats Hummels headline the star-studded list of stars that have been secured away from Signal Iduna Park by the perennial Bundesliga title favourites.

Christian Pulisic has played in 71 matches so far and scored ten goals for the club.
