Chelsea fullback Emerson vehemently denies reports he hates Lampard style

Emerson has denied reports claiming he is unhappy with the coaching method of Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.

Italian publication Tuttosport have stated Emerson has expressed a desire to leave Stamford Bridge, mainly due to Lampard's dictatorial management style.

But the Italy international was quick to dismiss the reports, writing on Instagram: "The world is going through a really difficult moment and there are journalists who want to spread fake news around to have content.

"I don't speak too much, but here is my only and last statement regarding this news.

"I never said that and I think definitely the opposite of what was mentioned (without my knowledge). Respect and gratitude always. Enjoy your family."

The left-back is being scouted by Juventus and Inter Milan.
