Gallagher hints on his future in Chelsea reacting to Maresca’s arrival


Conor Gallagher says he has ‘heard really good things’ about Enzo Maresca and everyone at Chelsea is ‘excited’ to work with the manager following Mauricio Pochettino’s departure.

Chelsea ended weeks of speculation by confirming Maresca as their new head coach on Monday. The 44-year-old is set to begin work on July 1 after signing a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge.

Several candidates, including Kieran McKenna, Thomas Tuchel, Roberto De Zerbi, and Julian Nagelsmann, had been linked with the position before Maresca was officially announced as the new head coach. The Italian manager recently led Leicester City back into the Premier League by topping the Championship last season. However, Leicester now finds itself without a manager as they prepare for their return to the top flight.

Chelsea hopes Maresca can turn the club’s fortunes around after burning through six managers in just five years. The team finished a disappointing sixth place last season.

Maresca expressed his excitement about joining Chelsea. “To join Chelsea, one of the biggest clubs in the world, is a dream for any coach. It is why I am so excited by this opportunity,” he said after being confirmed as Pochettino’s successor.

“I look forward to working with a very talented group of players and staff to develop a team that continues the club’s tradition of success and makes our fans proud,” Maresca added.

The future of England international Gallagher has been a major talking point among Chelsea fans recently. The club is under pressure to balance the books and is considering selling the midfielder this summer. However, Gallagher has distanced himself from speculation about a possible move. He insists he is eager to start working under the new Chelsea manager.

Gallagher speaks of his future:

After England’s 3-0 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina, Gallagher shared his thoughts on Maresca’s arrival. “Really exciting. I’ve heard really good things and I’ve seen really good things,” Gallagher told Sky Sports. “Myself and everyone at Chelsea are really happy and excited to work with him.”

When asked if the appointment represents a fresh start for Chelsea, Gallagher replied, “Yeah, exactly. We want to get Chelsea back to where they belong. So hopefully, with the new manager, we can start to progress and get to where we belong.”

The appointment of Maresca marks a significant change for Chelsea. The club hopes this decision will lead to better results on the field. Maresca’s recent success with Leicester City has given fans and players hope for a brighter future.

Chelsea’s decision to sign Maresca to a five-year deal shows their commitment to stability and long-term planning. After years of frequent managerial changes, the club is looking for consistency and sustained success. The new manager will have the task of developing the team and ensuring that Chelsea competes at the highest level.

The club’s supporters are eager to see how Maresca will shape the team. His reputation and recent achievements have created a buzz around Stamford Bridge. As the new season approaches, there is a sense of optimism among fans.

Gallagher’s enthusiasm for the new manager reflects the general sentiment within the club. Players and staff are looking forward to the fresh ideas and strategies Maresca will bring. There is hope that his leadership will guide Chelsea to new heights.

In summary, Enzo Maresca’s appointment as Chelsea’s head coach has generated excitement and optimism. With his track record of success, there is hope that he can lead the club back to its former glory. Both players and fans are eager to see what the future holds under his guidance.
