A former Nigeria international Michael Emenalo has resigned from his position as Chelsea’s technical director.

Emenalo joined the Blues in 2007, but has now called time on his association with the club as speculation continues to rage over the future of manager Antonio Conte.

Reports prior to Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday claimed that Carlo Ancelotti was being lined up to replace the Italian, and Emenalo’s departure is only likely to further highlight the tense atmosphere behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge.

Announcing his decision, Emenalo said: “This has been a very difficult decision to make, but one I believe is right for both myself and my family, and the club. 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.”

Also, the Head Coach Antonio Conte who felt sad over the departure Emenalo appreciated his companion.

“I am very sorry to see Michael leave Chelsea, and I would like to thank him for all his help and support since I arrived at this club. I have enjoyed working with him very much, we celebrated a Premier League title together in May, and I wish him the very best for the future,” he said.
