THE father of Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic took to Twitter to vent his frustration at his son's limited playing time.

In a now deleted tweet, Mark Pulisic said: "The sad thing is he loves the club, team-mates, and London.

"[Pulisic] puts his heart and soul into being a pro.

Pulisic has completed 90 minutes on just EIGHT occasions.

The 23-year-old star is one of the stars of the USA national team that are set to play England in the group stages of the World Cup in November.
