SAN FRANCISCO, November 27, (THEWILL) – Nigerian ex-international, Michael Emenalo, has officially joined French Ligue 1 clubside, AS Monaco, few weeks after he resigned from English Premier League top club, Chelsea.
Monaco confimed the appointment stating that Emenalo has joined the club as the new Sporting Director following his exit at Chelsea.
The former Super Eagles defender, stunned Chelsea by his decision to quit as technical director earlier this month after 10 years at Stamford Bridge and was tipped to join Monaco.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for me in a high-quality project,” he said.
“AS Monaco has shown great progress for several seasons and I am convinced that the future will be just as ambitious.
“Vadim Vasilyev’s willingness to see me join AS Monaco was decisive and for me, the choice was natural after my decision to leave Chelsea.”
Emenalo, 52, has previously managed this position in Chelsea, where he was a key member.
During his time in London, Chelsea won three Premier League titles, three FA Cups, the League Cup, Europa League and of course, the Champions League in 2012.
He also assisted in driving the technical programmes of Chelsea Academy and international network, building one of the best academies and leading the U19 to win two times in a row the Youth League (2015, 2016).
