Christian Pulisic is quickly becoming a household name in Germany and in the United States. But his stardom is probably at its largest in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Pulisic returned home to Hershey this weekend and attended a local youth soccer tournament, where he was treated like a rock star. The 18-year-old Dortmund sensation signed autographs, posed for pictures, and answered some questions about life with BVB and the USMNT.

Penn Live has some quotes from Pulisic on any possible future transfers, including his answer when someone asked him if he would ever go to Bayern Munich

"No, that I could not do," Pulisic said of going to Bayern Munich. "I can't say that, but nah."

"I mean when I was little I wanted to play in the Premier League but now that I'm in the Bundesliga I'm not planning on a move because that's what I want to do," Pulisic said. "I'm really happy there and I'm just kind of going with the flow and I'm happy with it."

We’ve heard plenty from English and American outlets about supposed Premier League interest in Pulisic. And while there may very well be teams interested, it’s tough to imagine Christian moving anytime soon. He clearly recognizes that being at Dortmund is best for his development for the foreseeable future.

And Dortmund fans would love to see him stay as long as possible. And they’d certainly also love to see him continue to annoy Bayern Munich fans, whether that’s on the pitch in Germany or during a Q&A in Pennsylvania.

Pulisic has the rest of the summer off now after the USMNT’s most recent 2018 World Cup qualifiers. He’s certainly enjoying this homecoming leg of his vacation. He was feeling so good that he was even riding around in some nice new wheels.

Christian Pulisic doesn’t go to college, but he’s still got the “big man on campus” vibe going here. He’s worked so hard to get to where he is, he deserves to treat himself to a convertible or two.

The son of Hershey has returned. Keep killing the off-season Christian.
