Michael Emenalo left his role as Chelsea’s technical director earlier this month.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed Emenalo helped him a lot during his time at Chelsea and insists Emenalo’s departure is a big loss for Chelsea.
“For sure this is a big loss for us,” Conte said.
“With Michael our relationship was very good, he helped me a lot this season.
“For sure it was a surprise for me that he resigned. At the same time we have to respect his decision and professional decision.
“I wish for him and his family the best for the present and future.”
