Dolly has teamed up with Adalanda, who has struggled for first places in the Italian Championship in recent seasons, in addition to last year’s Champions League quarter-finals and eighth place finish in 2021.

“I think the load on me is normal, but the way things were going at the club, it was too much. There came a time when I played well and they did nothing but do my duty and when there was no team to win, the defense was always to blame, it was always mine, Said the defender.
Defender was bought by Adalanda in the 2015/16 season, five months after being loaned to Roma.
Emerson Palmeri began defending the Italian team in 2017. Winner of the U-17 World Cup in the youth division of the Brazilian team. However, he was never considered for the senior team.

I was not very lucky to have minutes because I was young, but I always did what I could,” said the player who played in 33 games.
The idea of going to Europe came after a disappointment. “I played a lot with Oswaldo de Oliveira, but I had an injury and was out for two months. When I came back I regretted that I had returned as a replacement. Palermo was interested in the loan, so I accepted because I have dual citizenship,” he said.
Before coming to Chelsea in 2017, the player spent three seasons in Rome, where he won important titles: Europa League, FA Cup and Champions League.
He is the only one from the trident who has never played professionally in Brazil to have built his entire life in Italy. Despite shining for several seasons in the Napoli jersey, the Brazilian team never called up a defensive midfielder.
“The Brazilian team has always looked at it from a distance because I never played in a professional way in Brazil. I came here when I was 15. So when Italy opened its doors to me, I could not close them. The factor for coming to Italy at a very young age weighed a lot,” he said. Jorkinho told ESPN in 2018.
