‘A bit of home in Italy’ – USMNT stars Christian Pulisic and Yunus Musah greeted with an ‘extra special’ Thanksgiving meal from AC Milan


USMNT stars Yunus Musah and Christian Pulisic were greeted with a surprise Thanksgiving feast from Italian club Milan Thursday.

After leaving Thursday’s training session ahead of their return to action at the weekend, the American duo were surprised by the Italian club with a traditional holiday feast. Pulisic and Musah were not able to spend the holiday with their family, so the Serie A side went out of their way to bring a taste of home for their players.

“AC Milan truly knows how to make us feel like family. I am used to spending Thanksgiving away from home and from my friends and family, but yesterday was such a special surprise to walk off the training pitch and be greeted with a Thanksgiving feast. To have a taste of home here in Milan means the world, and it’s a testament to the incredible bond we share as a team. Grazie mille to the AC Milan family for making this year’s Thanksgiving day extra special.

For moments like these, I’m grateful to call Milan my home away from home.”“Feeling the warmth of a Thanksgiving celebration here in Milan is something I’ll always remember. AC Milan surprised us with a fantastic meal, making us feel like family. It’s moments like these that create a strong bond, and I’m grateful to be part of the AC Milan family. Thanks for bringing a bit of home to us in Italy.”

Pulisic was ruled out of action during the November international FIFA break after picking up an injury against PSG in the Champions League in early November, with just minutes to spare in the contest. Thankfully, it turned out to be nothing serious, and he’s now in contention to make his return to the pitch this weekend. Meanwhile, Musah, has been playing some of his best soccer of late for both club and country, recently being compared to ex-Rossoneri and Barcelona midfielder, Franck Kessie.

The USMNT duo are finding life in Milan incredibly successful, with both getting regular minutes and contributing to the success of the club. In return, seeing the Italian side share the American holiday with them is a brilliant touch; the real question though, is what the spread was actually like! Turkey or ham? Mashed or sweet potatoes? Regardless, it’s safe to say they were both pleasantly surprised with the meal from the Italian club.
