Michael Emenalo has stepped aside from his post as the Technical director at Chelsea Football Club.
Statement on Chelsea’s website read;
‘during Michael’s time with Chelsea, we have lifted three Premier League titles, three FA Cups, the League Cup, Europa League and of course, the Champions League in 2012, becoming the first London club to do so. Additionally, we have been crowned FA Youth Cup champions six times in eight years and lifted the UEFA Youth League twice, supplying key squad members for England’s Under-20 and Under-17 World Cup successes this year’.
Emenalo while announcing his resignation 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.’
According to the cubs’s Chairman Bruce Buck;
‘It is with regret that the owner and board of directors accepted Michael’s resignation this week. He has had a tremendous impact on the club over the past 10 years and this is evident in everything we have achieved. We are sorry to see him go but understand his desire to move on and explore new challenges.’
Michael Emenalo became Chelsea’s Technical Director in 2011 and has played a significant background role in supporting the work of the first team management, leading the club’s international and domestic scouting network and assisting in driving the technical programmes of our Academy and international youth network.
