Chelsea’s Technical Director, Emenalo Resigns

Chelsea’s Technical Director Michael Emenalo has announced his departure from the club.

Emenalo acted as a link between the first team and the Blues board, had an influence on transfers, including Chelsea’s loan strategy, and was involved in developing players from the academy.

A statement from the club reads;

“Chelsea Football Club today announces that technical director Michael Emenalo has decided to stand down from his role.

“Michael arrived at Chelsea in 2007 and in 10 years at Stamford Bridge has contributed to a period of unprecedented success for the first team and academy.”

The former Nigerian international, who joined Chelsea in 2007 and has been the technical director since 2011, has already been linked with a position at Monaco.

In his goodbye message, Emenalo said it had been a difficult decision to make, adding: “I have had the privilege to work alongside some of the most talented people in the world of sport over the past 10 years and I will depart incredibly proud of the achievements we have made.

“I wish Chelsea every success and look forward to following the club’s future triumphs from afar.”
