This news could have potentially huge repercussions at Stamford Bridge.
According to the Telegraph, Michael Emenalo has stepped down as chelsea technical Director.
Emenalo joined Chelsea way back in 2007 while Avram Grant was in charge at the Bridge. That managerial appointment may well have proven to be a car crash, but the Nigerian’s presence and positive impact has been witnessed on and off the field throughout his 10-year employment.
In 2011, Emenalo was promoted from assistant first-team coach to technical tirector, a role which he has held ever since – until now.
Emenalo has come under considerable scrutiny from the fans in recent years, mostly due to a lack understanding of what his role actually is.
If you look at the facts, though, as the Telegraph note, he has been supportive of Antonio Conte through this difficult period for the Italian, and his departure is a considerable blow to Roman Abramovich.
Thanks for all your hard work over the years, Michael, and best of luck for the future!
