“Congratulation to him” Frank Leboeuf says 24-year-old Chelsea man was the only ‘great’ player last night
ESPN pundit Frank Leboeuf singled out Conor Gallagher for special praise, stating that the 24-year-old midfielder was the only Chelsea player to impress for the entire 90 minutes in their recent 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace. Despite a lackluster first half, where Chelsea trailed and managed just one shot, Gallagher’s standout performance in the second half, including a brace, caught the attention of Leboeuf.
While acknowledging that no Chelsea player may have merited a pass mark based on the opening 45 minutes, Leboeuf specifically congratulated Gallagher for his consistent excellence throughout the match. Gallagher’s recent run of good form, marked by goals and assists, has endeared him to the fans, who appreciate not only his energetic style but also his goal-scoring contributions.
Gallagher’s impressive display against Crystal Palace, where he ran 13km during the game, defies recent transfer speculation suggesting he might leave Stamford Bridge in the summer. Despite reports suggesting a potential departure, Gallagher’s performances continue to make a case for his importance to the Chelsea squad, making it challenging for him to be considered for a transfer.
