Chelsea outstretched their European domination by winning the coveted Club World Cup to complete their collection of all the major trophies.
Celebrations needed to wait with the upcoming game ahead, as the players returned to London immediately after their victory.
While sitting comfortably on their return flight, the lads in Blue took turns in clicking pictures with the trophy. While the players were posing in front of the camera, the American wizard, Christian Pulisic, was navigating a different world altogether.
Pulisic was lost in the world of Harry Potter as he shared a picture holding the trophy in one hand and a Harry Potter book in the other.
The 23-year-old was clearly immersed in the wizarding world, as he completely forgot about the trophy and asked: “Guys which Harry Potter book is best.”
Pulisic’s Potterhead fans were elated with this reveal, and many were seen praising him for his literary choices.
I like Christian Pulisic even more now. Didn’t know that was possible— Kel Robbins (@kel_robbins) February 14, 2022
Here’s to believing he can excel beyond what he has thus far from here on out 🙇🏻♂️🇺🇸🔵⚪️. Get it brotha https://t.co/BMOC9miOKy
Wait Pulisic is reading Harry Potter? I can never slander him again https://t.co/Aa40pk3FSq— VELA (@dofficial_vela) February 14, 2022
References were made about Pulisic’s national teammate, Weston McKennie, who too is an ardent Potter fan.

Obviously, the Twitterati mentioned their favourite book in the series, with many agreeing in unison to Pulisic’s choice, The Prisoner of Azkaban.

Besides the book in Pulisic’s hand, fans also couldn’t stop looking at Andreas Christensen, who was sleeping soundly beside the American international.
I love that Andreas is just crashed next to him https://t.co/wOEIH3l8Ai— Skye⭐⭐ (@ChelseaFCSkye) February 13, 2022
It was great to see the bookish manner in which the Chelsea star recovers after a tiresome tournament.
