Following his exit from Chelsea, Michael Emenalo has joined Monaco as Sporting Director.
Emenalo who spent 10 years at the Stamford Bridge stunned many by his decision to quit as technical director earlier this month.
The 52-year-old was tipped to join Monaco and his move has now been confirmed.
“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.”
Vice-president Vadim Vasilyev added, “I am very happy to be able to count on Michael. I invested a lot in his arrival.
“His know-how in detection and recruitment, as well as the technical experience acquired in one of the most successful clubs in recent years, are the reasons that led us to present this ambitious challenge.
“This appointment is another sign of our ambition and our desire to be as competitive as possible.
