EPL: Why I Left Chelsea & Joined Lyon – Emerson



Lyon defender, Emerson Palmieri, has finally opened up on why he decided to exit from his former club Chelsea to join Peter Bosz’s side.

According to the soccer star, his decision to move to Lyon was because there was no space for him to feature for the Premier League giants under the Blues.

Recall that Emerson left Chelsea in the summer transfer window for the French Ligue 1 side on a season-long loan.

In an interactive session with the Gazetta dello Sport, Emerson revealed why he left west London and how he felt about his decisions.

In his words, he said, “I decided to leave Chelsea as I had no space.

“Roberto Mancini [Italy manager] told me: you need to play, you have to be a starter. OL [Lyon] proposed an interesting project and I accepted in two or three days.

“I am really happy with my choice.”
