Conor Gallagher reveals admiration for pair of Chelsea icons as he aims to become goal-scoring midfielder

Gallagher stars for Crystal Palace

Conor Gallagher would sign for Crystal Palace on a season-long loan at the back end of July.

The Eagles, though, did not have the best of starts to the 2021/22 campaign.

They would begin their season under Patrick Viera by being hammered 3-0 by Chelsea on August 14th.

Palace then met with Brentford a week later and would be held to a 0-0 draw by the Bees. Then, in the League Cup, Palace were dealt a 1-0 loss by Watford in the 2nd round.

With goals seriously hard to come by, however, central midfielder Gallagher would step up to net two superb strikes against West Ham this past weekend to earn Palace a draw.

Gallagher on Lampard & Cole

Gallagher has since linked up with England’s under-21s for the international break.

And whilst there, Gallagher conducted an interview in which he expressed his admiration for Chelsea legend Frank Lampard whilst also expressing his desire to be a goalscoring midfielder:

“Frank Lampard is someone I have always looked up to, being a Chelsea fan, it was incredible watching him and the number of goals and assists he got was crazy for a midfielder.

“It is ridiculous with his numbers. I want to be a goalscoring midfielder but there’s a lot of work to be done. I got a couple of goals the other day which gave me confidence for sure.”

Gallagher was also full of praise for another Chelsea legend, Ashley Cole:

“I haven’t worked with him yet but I’ve seen him around the Chelsea training ground. I’m really excited to work with him. I looked up to him as well as a Chelsea fan.

“He was the best left-back in the world. He can teach me things – he seems like a top guy and a top coach.”
