God only knows what Emerson’s future might be, claims man in charge of Emerson’s future

Taking a line from the classic Beach Boys love song, Emerson’s agent says that his client’s ultimate future is in the hands of a higher power.

“The only one who can answer this question is God, only he knows if Emerson will return to play in Italy or not.”

Not to get into a religious discussion or any digressions about free will, but I think Mr. Agent should probably give himself and his main man, Emerson a bit more credit in being able to control his future. He is, after all, apparently quite happy at Chelsea and with two years left on his contract, should be feeling fairly secure in his status despite a disappointing season.

Sure, sometimes things happen inexplicably and suddenly in football, but it’s well within Emerson’s ability to decide for himself in this case. Should he stay or should he go? God may know, but it is not the only one.

“Emerson is very happy at Chelsea, he is comfortable with his teammates and his coach. To date I have not had contact with any club. Yes, Juventus was interested when the boy played for Roma. It was the season before he moved to Chelsea.

“As I said, he is very happy at Chelsea and plays in one of the biggest leagues in the world. [...] I don’t know [Sarri’s wishes] personally, I learned from the media that he had a great experience with him and that he likes his football.”

Really not sure what the big mystery is then, Mr. Agent-man. Sounds pretty clear to me!
