Fresh facts have emerged on why Chelsea Technical Director and former Nigerian worldwide footballer, Michael Emenalo made a decision to throw in the towel with the English Premier League club where he had worked for good 10 years.
The former Nigeria worldwide Emenalo has been a key confidant of owner Roman Abramovich, acting as a link between the first team and the board.
This comes amid growing doubts over Conte's own future, with the Italian reportedly frustrated over the inaccessibility of Abramovich as the champions struggle.
This past summer, Chelsea lost out on several transfer targets including Romelu Lukaku.
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. I wish Chelsea every success and look forward to following the club's future triumphs from afar, ' he added. He has had a tremendous impact on the club over the past 10 years and this is evident in everything we have achieved.
Chelsea said Emenalo had "contributed to a period of unprecedented success for the first team and academy".
"We are sorry to see him go but understand his desire to move on and explore new challenges", Buck said.
Chelsea said the club will be reviewing its management structure, with the help of Emenalo.
Emenalo's time at the club was never shy of controversy and reports of palpable discord between various individuals at respective times, but one can not deny that he played a major part in Chelsea FC's unprecedented success in the last 10 years.
