Conor Gallagher send a new message to Todd Boehly
Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher has been very good in recent games, and has in fact been one of the team’s best players this season.
He’s gone from a new face a couple of years ago to one of the most experienced players in a very raw team, and he’s captaining them on a regular basis too.
When a slew of expensive midfield players were bought from across the world through this last year it seemed his days were numbered, but competing for his place has brought the best out of him – as you’d expect from a natural born fighter like him.
“Yeah, I love it” the midfielder said in quotes picked up by the Evening Standard when asked whether he enjoyed the fierce competition for minutes.
“I think most times in my career I’ve had a point to prove and I love the challenge and I always want new challenges and targets to set myself, so I just want to carry on what I’m doing now and help Chelsea climb up the table.
“The manager picks his team and we have good relationship, he understands my game, he understands what I bring to the team and right now I think it’s really working, so hopefully we can only get better.
“It is really important to have that fighting spirit as well and I think I try to bring that to the team. I always work as hard as I can and I try and rub that off on the other players as well.
“You could see that because everyone gave their all, everyone was brilliant in terms of work ethic and it’s something we’re going to need going forward along with all the player’s qualities as well.”
We never thought it was a wise idea to sell him – we hope those in charge have come around to that way of thinking now, having seen him prove both his personality and his footballing ability week after week. He’s rated at €40m by Transfermarkt, but we’d get a lot more than that if he carries on like this.
