Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has reportedly made a decision on the future of Marcos Alonso as a Chelsea player.
According to Daily Star, Lampard has made the decision to sell Alonso before the end of the transfer and will now keep Emerson Palmieri as backup to Ben Chilwell.
The Athletic claim Lampard clashed with Alonso in the dressing room following his disastrous display in Chelsea’s 3-3 draw at West Brom last weekend.
The Spaniard was at fault for two goals and was withdrawn at halftime. Instead of joining his teammates on the substitute bench in the second half, Alonso chose to watch the second half in the team bus.
Asked about the three goals Chelsea conceded at West Brom, Lampard told Sky Sports: “They were clear mistakes. The first one Marcos heads it into the middle of the pitch for them for a transition.
“Thiago’s one is a mistake. He’s been around long enough to know that and we will certainly give him that one in his first game.
“And then Marcos loses his man for the third goal from the corner, a clear mistake.
“You can do as many meetings as you want, if you are going to make those mistakes you give yourself a mountain to climb.”
