CHELSEA fans urged incoming boss Mauricio Pochettino to replace Conor Gallagher with Noah Beck – as the social media star wowed at Soccer Aid.
Beck’s golden balls spread around the Old Trafford pitch helped Pochettino’s World XI beat England 4-2.
And watching Noah’s art was a religious experience for some Chelsea supporters.
One said: “Thank God Poch saw Noah Beck before he saw Gallagher that might just save us.”
Another posted: “Noah Beck better than Gallagher, not even joking.”
A third wrote: “On everything I love Noah Beck is twice the footballer of Conor Gallagher.”
This verdict was yet more scathing: “Noah beck>>>>>>>>>>>Mason Mount and Conor Gallagher.”
American Beck, 22, was actually a decent midfielder for the Portland Pilots in the NCAA Division One across the pond.
That’s the top level for students in the USA’s National Collegiate Athletic Association.
Beck became a TikTok sensation in quarantine during the Covid pandemic.
He amassed 34.1million TikTok followers on TikTok and 9m on Instagram, also having more than 1.5m YouTube subscribers.
And his new audience at Manchester United‘s Theatre of Dreams was impressed just as quickly.
Beck’s industry helped Pochettino‘s team often dominate in centre-pitch.
And Stamford Bridge fans were stunned.
“Noah Beck more technical than professional footballer Gallagher,” one claimed.
“Poch gonna replace Conor Gallagher in that Chelsea line up with Noah Beck,” wrote another.
And this demand to recruit the “upgrade” was even more urgent: “Sign Noah beck and terminate Gallagher’s contract.”
The two long-serving Academy products must hope the former PSG manager is not as Tik-ed off with them as many supporters seem to be.
