Former Super Eagles Star Emenalo Quits Chelsea, Set For Monaco

Former Nigeria defender Michael Emenalo has resigned from his position as technical director at Chelsea.

According to a report on the Telegraph, Emenalo quit after declining not to engage in a three-way power battle with current Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and Marina Granovskaia who are known not to see eye to eye.

The former Nigerian international, who was in the Super Eagles squad for the USA ’94 World Cup, could assume a position at AS Monaco.

Emenalo joined Chelsea in 2007 as an assistant under Avram Grant and he also worked as an opposition scout and assistant first-team coach under Carlo Ancelotti, replacing Ray Wilkins when he was sacked.

With Michael as Chelsea’s technical director, the 1994 World Cup star helped Chelsea win three Premier League titles, the FA Cup, the League Cup, the Europa League and the Champions League.

  • Made some good deals and terrible mistakes in the transfer market. Example was letting Chelsea sell matic to Manchester united. Wish you all the very best

  • This is the best time for the Super Eagles to hand him a contract..He should help us to convince Nigerian players in other countries to switch allegiance to Nigeria…besides….he’ll be highly respected by those players.

    Great guy! Quietly flew the Nigerian flag with resounding success at the highest level of football management in one of the leading clubs in the world. Your case continues to demonstrate how successful Nigerians can be if given opportunities in the right environment. One day, many Nigerians will come to appreciate your pioneering role as your performance will certainly open up opportunities for Nigerians in similar role – just like Keshi did as player, and Oliseh has started doing as a coach.
    Wishing you the very best in your future endeavours!
