We want you to hear about the sacrifice, and joy, that comes from setting your sights on top flight European football, and in this case, what it’s like to make it there.
Mark is the father of Christian Pulisic, the 17 year old American who debuted with Borussia Dortmund’s first team earlier this season.
But that wasn’t the focus of this chat with Mark.
The focus was more on the process of getting Christian to where he is now.
- Where did it all begin?
- When was first contact with the National Team?
- How was he discovered by Borussia Dortmund?
- What about an agent?
- What about school? The language?
- Looking back now, what would you do different?
These are just some of the topics he touched on. You’ll also hear him talk about his role as a youth coach in Germany and his time as a former professional MISL player in the United States.
One moment to highlight from this conversation is the desire to include Christian in all of the important discussions and decisions that ultimately led the Pulisic family to where they are today.
