Conor Gallagher Finally Speaks Up In A Message To Chelsea After Being Refused To Play In FA Cup Semis

“Obviously I wanted to be part of it. It is an amazing occasion for the club to be at Wembley in the semi-final,” Conor Gallagher told Goal after he was not allowed to face his parent club Chelsea with Crystal Palace.

“I was happy to be here and support the lads. Playing in games like this is what everyone wants to do, a semi-final of the FA Cup at Wembley is one of those games. Unfortunately, I couldn’t do it today, but hopefully, it comes [around] again.

“I just want to play games, especially a game like this, but it is what it is. The boys did well today but it just wasn’t made to be.”
