Tuchel in Gallagher apology
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed he “apologised” to Conor Gallagher during a chance encounter at a restaurant, with the Blues loanee unable to play in this weekend’s FA Cup semi-final.
The on-loan Palace man is not allowed to play against his parent club, and Tuchel said:
“I had the chance to talk to Conor, and I could see his frustration.
“We met some weeks ago after the international break by coincidence in a restaurant.
“We had a chat, then the subject came up, and I apologised because I know how competitive he is, and I like him a lot and know his character very well.
He added: “Yeah, it’s the way it is. We play to win the game, and the rules were clear when we made the loan.
“I can totally understand Patrick Vieira and Conor’s disappointment, but these were the rules and we don’t want to suffer from the rules.”
