Chelsea news: Blues rocked as Michael Emenalo quits Stamford Bridge

Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo steps down with Monaco keen

The former Nigeria worldwide 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.

But during his time at Chelsea, the likes of Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois, Cesar Azpilicueta and Willian were brought in from European clubs - although the club also drew flak over expensive flops and a lack of activity in recent windows.

According to the Telegraph, this has something to do with not wanting to be a part "of a three-way power struggle" with Antonio Conte and Marina Granovskaia.

Hearing a batch of PILs seeking an interim order, the bench said, "Time has already been extended up to December 31". The Centre reiterated that production of Aadhaar was also mandatory for opening new bank accounts.

"This has been a very hard decision to make, but one I believe is right for both myself and my family, and the club", Emenalo said even as his resignation has been linked to the frustrating summer transfer window Chelsea suffered, which caused tension between Conte, Emenalo and director Marina Granovskaia.

According to a report on the UK Telegraph, Emenalo made a decision to leave 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.

Reports prior to Chelsea's 1-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday claimed that Carlo Ancelotti was being lined up to replace Conte, and Emenalo's departure is only likely to further highlight the tense atmosphere behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge. "We are sorry to see him go but understand his desire to move on and explore new challenges". "I need an opportunity to get to see my young kids grow and also to step back and reflect on the work that I have done here and the things that we have been able to accomplish together in this great club", he told Chelsea TV. His tenure saw the London side through what is arguably their best period, where they secured three Premier League titles, a Champions League triumph, and several other domestic honors too.
