Chelsea ace Christian Pulisic falls off boat while doing skills over giant fish

Chelsea sensation Christian Pulisic fell onto a giant fish as he did kick-ups on the side of a boat.

The 22-year-old has been seen enjoying his time off after winning the CONCACAF Nations League last month with a mix of fishing and football.

Pulisic uploaded a viral video to his Instagram which shows the USA star ‘teaching’ a Goliath Grouper fish how to play football by performing kick-ups over it.

A man in the video can be heard saying 'Got a Goliath Grouper that Christian caught, and he's teaching it how to play soccer', but things took a turn when Pulisic fell feet-first into the water.

The fish was left bamboozled by the skilful winger, who began by confidently executing kick-ups before taking the showboating too far.

Pulisic stretched too far in controlling the ball and fell into the water fully clothed, landing on the fish before having to be pulled back in by a man on the boat.

He gave out a nervous laugh as his entourage cheered and clapped in surprise.

The video has been received with some criticism due to the distress caused to the fish, which is part of a threatened species.
