Former Super Eagles defender, Ifeanyi Udeze has applauded former Green Eagles left back, Michael Emenalo who has resigned from his position as Chelsea’s Technical director.
Udeze, while speaking on Brila FM’s Football 360degrees, the former WBA defender hailed the efforts of Michael, “Michael has tried, he has really tried, if I’m not mistaking, he has spent 10 years”.
“In 10 years, Chelsea has won almost every competition,” I think he has made the best decision for himself at this time,” Udeze affirmed.
“I don’t even need to know the reason for the decision, Michael is a top professional and I’m sure he’s made the best decision, moving forward.”
Perhaps, he wants to push into Management, Michael has all the badges, all the coaching badges and has the top level experience”
Emenalo helped bring Conte to Stamford Bridge and has overseen transfers, women’s football and youth development while the former Juventus boss won a Premier League title in his first season.
What the Premier League champions do to fill the void left by Emenalo’s departure is still uncertain and will be decided at the top of the club by Abramovich in consultation with directors Eugene Tenenbaum and Granovskaia.
And senior Blues sources say it was no surprise to them that Emenalo stood down as the former Notts County defender, who played at the 1994 World Cup in the US, had made it clear to Chelsea as far back as the summer that he was considering his future and he is understood to want to spend some time with his family before making any decision over his next challenge.
“This has been a very difficult decision to make, but one I believe is right for both myself and my family, and the club,” Emenalo said upon announcing the move.
“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.
