Milan star Rafael Leao has no ill will against his teammate Christian Pulisic, who’stole’ his goal in a Europa League game against Slavia Prague on Thursday.

Pulisic scored last night by touching a ball off a Rafael Leao chip shot moments before it crossed the line.

“I wasn’t sure if it was going in, so I felt like I had to touch it,” admitted Pulisic on Thursday when Sky Sport Italia questioned if Rafael Leao should have been upset with him for’stealing’ his goal.

“I have personal goals and assists, but what matters most is if we win. Of course, in this tournament, we all want to go to the final and win.”

 

Rafael Leao expressed his thoughts on social media, commenting on Pulisic’s most recent Instagram image.

The Portuguese star replied with three handshake emojis that he was not upset with the USMNT captain.

Pulisic has nine goals in 36 appearances for Milan this season, while Leao has nine goals in 34 games.
