In an interview with Mail+, Conor Gallagher opened up on the phone call that he had with Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season.
“I’ve got older brothers who say if you’ve got something you want to say, then do it,” Gallagher said.
Managers aren’t scary — they want to talk to their players and know what your thoughts are.
“I told him what I thought and he said what he thought. I said I think I’m ready to play for Chelsea.
“I feel ready for a step up in my career. If there is a chance to be a part of the team at Chelsea then I can’t turn it down. I’ve got to have belief in myself that I can show the fans and the boss what I can do.”
At the moment, Gallagher is with the Chelsea squad in the United States as he tries to stake his claim for a place in the team for the season.
By all accounts, Tuchel is a fan of the midfielder who excelled on loan at Crystal Palace and wants to give him a chance at Stamford Bridge.
