Emerson Palmieri update
Chelsea full-back Emerson Palmieri says he’s in no rush to leave Stamford Bridge – but a return to Italy is a possibility.
The 25-year-old star has been tipped to return to Serie A having failed to cement a role in Frank Lampard’s starting XI.
“I was very happy in Serie A, including with the culture, which is also why I chose to play for Italy,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “A return to Serie A could happen, but I have a contract with Chelsea and I’m in no rush to go anywhere.
“It has been a wonderful experience at Chelsea, as first there was Antonio Conte, so obviously it was easier to deal with an Italian coach. As for Maurizio Sarri, I’ve no words for what a marvellous year we had, as we finished third in the Premier League, reached the Carabao Cup final and won the Europa League. We can’t complain!”
