Michael Emenalo resigned from his role as Chelsea technical director and took on the same role for French champions, Monaco.
There were rumours that Emenalo and Antonio Conte weren’t on good terms, but the Nigerian has insisted he had a ‘very good personal’ relationship with Conte and that the Chelsea boss also has strong support from the Chelsea chiefs with the best of assistants.
He said: “It is true that I have a very good personal relationship with him, I love his work, I love his passion, I love his ideas. But I think he’ll be just fine.
“He is surrounded by a lot of competent assistants, those he brought with him and those who were already at the club, and their recent results just show they will keep going on stronger and stronger.”
