“The player is too strong ” “He’s too good for us to handle” – Crystal Palace coach believes 24-year-old Chelsea player help Chelsea to win 3-1 the match
Certainly! It seems like Conor Gallagher’s performance had a significant impact on the match between Chelsea and Crystal Palace. Despite Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson expressing disappointment over Gallagher’s goals against his team, it appears that Chelsea decided not to sell Gallagher in the January transfer window. Hodgson, however, mentioned that Gallagher could have been a Crystal Palace player if the transfer had materialized.
After the match, Hodgson commented on the situation, saying, “It’s crazy seeing one of your favorite players score goals against you. Conor Gallagher scored twice and made it difficult for us. I feel extremely sorry for our fans because they will go home and sleep on that defeat; it’s going to be very tough for everybody.”
Pochettino, the Chelsea manager, shared that Gallagher chose to stay at Chelsea during the January transfer window. When asked about tying Gallagher down to a new deal, Pochettino responded, “It is about him and the club. I am not suffering from this type of thing. He still has one more year on his contract, which expires in June 2025. That is a matter for him and the club.”
Chelsea seems to have bounced back after a previous defeat by Wolves, securing victories against Aston Villa in the FA Cup and Crystal Palace in subsequent matches.
