Influential Blues TD leaves club

Chelsea's influential technical director Michael Emenalo resigned yesterday, ending a 10-year association with the Blues.

One of owner Roman Abramovich's most trusted lieutenants, he joined the club as a scout before moving up the ranks at Stamford Bridge.

"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.
