A Christian Pulisic fan moans that his replica kits with his hero’s name on the back were ‘ruined’ after Jorginho approached and signed them ‘without asking’ during Chelsea’s training session in Los Angeles …but the other fans have NO sympathy!
- Chelsea are on a pre-season tour in Los Angeles ahead of the new season
- A fan was hoping to get two shirts signed by his hero Christian Pulisic
- However, Jorginho signed both shirts ‘without asking’ the fan for permission.
- The supporter has now claimed both shirts have been ‘ruined’
- However, other fans did not offer him any sympathy on social media.
Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has left a “very disappointed” fan after signing two replica Christian Pulisic shirts during his side’s pre-season tour of the United States.
The Blues have arrived in Los Angeles to take on Club America and Charlotte FC as Thomas Tuchel’s side prepare for the new season.
They were warmly welcomed by home fans who gathered outside the team’s training base, and one fan was eager to get an autograph from fellow American Pulisic. However, things didn’t exactly go as planned for him.
“Yesterday I tried to get @cpulisic_10 to sign his USA and Dortmund kits at Chelsea training (he didn’t). Instead, Jorginho came shockingly close and immediately signed both without asking,’ the fan wrote with the @JSRFootball Twitter account alongside a video of the incident.
‘I have no idea why, nobody else did. My jerseys are now ruined and I am very disappointed.

The fan also claimed his Borussia Dortmund shirt was ‘ruined’
The fan seemed genuinely upset that he missed out on signing his hero, but he received little sympathy on social media.
A fan compared his unfortunate situation to a memorable moment from The Simpsons, where the show has a photo of Sean Connery signed by fellow James Bond actor Roger Moore.
“This is the funniest tweet I’ve ever read,” another fan commented in response to the original tweet.
Meanwhile, others sided with Jorginho and even claimed the fan should be grateful that the Italian signed both shirts.
“Jorgi is so classy,” wrote one fan on Twitter.
“You are actually lucky because he was signed by a top player and TOP 3 BALLON D’OR 2021 player,” added another.

A fan asked why the fan showed up to Chelsea training with a Dortmund shirt
There was also some bewilderment as to why the fan showed up in a Borussia Dortmund shirt in the first place – a club Pulisic hasn’t played for since 2019.
“Why do you bring a Dortmund shirt to Chelsea training?” asked a supporter.
The fan has since claimed he is still hoping to get Pulisic’s autograph, and it remains to be seen if things will be better if he gets a second chance to meet the Chelsea players.
