It seems Chelsea’s youngsters are still having fun and enjoying their holidays despite the new season being just around the corner.
Conor Gallagher, an under-23 defensive midfielder who made the step up from the u-18 squad only last summer, has posted a funny Instagram snap from the Paphos Zoo in Cyprus. Unsurprisingly, his teammates started teasing him right away.
The youngster can be seen with a giraffe, but he has a disgusted yet hilarious look on his face, which, of course, attracted a lot of attention from some of the other Chelsea players.
Gallagher captioned it with “stinky breath”, but when it’s all said and done it was he who got bantered by his friends, not the giraffe. Tariq Uwakwe, another Chelsea youngster who just signed a new contract with the club, just couldn’t believe what was happening in the hilarious image.
The same could be said for Billy Gilmour, who was seemingly in tears from laughter just seeing Gallagher’s newest snaps.
Gallagher had a pretty good season with the U-23 team, managing a total of 16 performances and scoring four goals while assisting three in the process, which is a pretty good return for a midfielder.
