Frank Lampard's controlling nature reportedly pushing Emerson out of club

According to reports, Frank Lampard is very 'controlling' and this is one of the reasons defender Emerson Palmieri wants to leave the club.

The full-back has failed to make Chelsea’s last two match-day squads in the Premier League and reports are already doing round in the media that the Blues are after Leicester City's Ben Chilwell.

Tuttosport is reporting that Emerson is fed up with Lampard’s way of running rule over his squad, considering him a ‘sergeant’ and too controlling.

Serie A sides Inter and Juventus are interested in bringing Emerson back to Italy after almost two years in England.

Having started just 13 times for the Blues in the league this season, Italy coach Roberto Mancini urged Emerson to return to Serie A saying "It would be nice if Emerson Palmieri, who hasn’t played much for Chelsea, could come and play in Italy."

Emerson, 25, could fetch as much as £28m and it appears his international career might hinge on his exit from Chelsea.
