Italian manager Mancini urges Emerson Palmieri return to Serie A

Italian boss Roberto Mancini has urged Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri to return to Serie A if the defender will be part of the national side in the postponed EURO 2020.

Emerson left AS Roma for Stamford Bridge in January 2018 window and has been in and out of the Blues’ side recently with injury and the resurgent form of Marcos Alonso.

With the Euro 2020 was pushed back until the summer of 2021 due to the coronavirus crisis, Mancini has warned the left-back that he isn’t the only defender on his mind and urged him to return with Juventus linked with the defender in recent days.

“As for the full-backs, we knew Adam Masina, although he disappeared from the radar a bit after his move to Watford,” Mancini told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Luca Pellegrini already spent time with the senior squad and can improve.

“It would be nice if Emerson Palmieri, who hasn’t played much for Chelsea, could come and play in Italy.”
