Conte, on the other hand, had this to say about the situation: "I am very sorry to see Michael leave Chelsea, and I would like to thank him for all his help and support since I arrived at this club".

Former Nigeria worldwide footballer, Michael Emenalo has quit as the technical director of English side Chelsea, stepping down from his post after 10 years with the Blues.

The Nigerian was integral in identifying transfer targets, alongside Antonio Conte, and provide data on those targets before a final decision was made.

Emanalo, who has been at Chelsea for ten years, has chose to leave as his relationship with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte and Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia has broken down, with player recruitment seemingly the key issue.

Emenalo joined Chelsea in 2007 as an assistant under Avram Grant and he also worked as an opposition scout and assistant first-team coach under Carlo Ancelotti, replacing Ray Wilkins when he was sacked.

SC pulls up banks, telecom companies for creating panic on Aadhaar linking
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had earlier announced that the linking of Aadhaar with bank accounts is mandatory. The Centre also said on Thursday that showing proof of Aadhaar is mandatory for opening new bank accounts.

Although Emenalo's relationship with Conte was not hard, this is a club with power struggles going on off the pitch.

It ends a 10-year association with the Blues in which time Emenalo has become a firm favourite of owner Roman Abramovich.

He was in Rome to watch Chelsea lose 3-0 to Roma in the Champions League last week, and was also spotted embracing defender Andreas Christensen at Stamford Bridge after the club's win over Jose Mourinho's United.

Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck added: "Michael has had a tremendous impact on the club over the past 10 years and this is evident in everything we have achieved".

During his time with Chelsea, the club 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. "We are sorry to see him go but understand his desire to move on and explore new challenges".
