Chelsea outcast claims he feels “more important” to his country
Emerson Palmieri has admitted that his Chelsea career is not going according to plan and that he felt “more important” playing for Italy.

Emerson turned down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge after Ben Chilwell of Leicester City signed it this summer. He also has to fight for a place on the team with Marcos Alonso.

The 26-year-old has not played a minute of Premier League football this season. Last year he only started 13 top games.

There have been many rumors of a possible summer departure from Emerson. While he has fallen out of favor with Chelsea, he remains in good hands in Italy.

The former Roma full-back was reportedly a target for Inter Milan during the transfer window, but there was no outcome.

Despite his lack of action at the club level, Emerson remains an integral part of the Italian national team. After the friendly against Moldova, he started the UEFA Nations League draw against Poland.

And Emerson has now admitted that he is much happier with his situation at the international level than at the club level.

Commenting on his fate with the national team, Emerson said: “When I get here, I change my mind. I feel important and part of the group.

“At Chelsea, things are not going as I would like for this part of the season. I just have to work. ”

While the Brazilian-born defender has found it difficult to play at Chelsea, Emerson could be involved in a second game within four days, with Italy set to face the Netherlands on Wednesday.

However, he is not concerned about the small gap between games and claims he is “ready” for the challenge.

He continued: “When you play for the national team you always have to be ready.

“We’re going to play three games in 10 days. When I knew I had to play I was happy, but it wasn’t a surprise.

“When I play with this shirt, I have to do my best.”

Emerson prides itself on keeping Lewandowski away

During his time at Chelsea, Emerson was a fringe player. He recalled why the club had paid more than £ 18 million for his signature in Italy’s draw against Poland.

The left-back presented Robert Lewandowski with a crucial challenge – The player who many thought would have won the Ballon d’Or if this year’s awards ceremony had taken place – To keep Italy’s goal intact.

Emerson also created danger at the other end after a penalty was dismissed after being brought into the box.

And the Chelsea man explained how good it felt to be making a meaningful contribution again.

He added: “We are defenders, when we play against players of this level it was almost like a goal.

“I’m also happy for the defense department. It was very important to stop someone like Lewandowski.

“We have not set any goals and have to give them value. I couldn’t score, it’s part of the game but I think there was a penalty for me.

“The defender moved me a little and I tried to get up and shoot. I didn’t see the pictures but I have a feeling it might have been a punishment. ”

Emerson will remain under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2022.
