Power Play! Antonio Conte Is Happy Michael Emenalo Is Out Of Chelsea

| |

Former Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins is of the belief that Antonio Conte will be glad about the departure of Michael Emenalo from the Stamford Bridge earlier this week.

The former Nigerian defender resigned as the football director at Chelsea after ten years in charge.

“Unfortunately Michael and I didn’t see eye-to-eye,” Wilkins told BBC 5 Live.

“The most important thing at a club like Chelsea is when you’re getting players in, it’s what the coach wants. It’s not what anybody else wants.

“And the players, more often than not you’re bringing into a club like Chelsea, are world-class footballers anyway.

“So they’re known across the globe. So you know who you need to bring in to improve.

“It’s the same with Manchester United. Jose will decide who comes to Manchester United, no one else.

“And I honestly do believe that Antonio Conte should have his own way, bring who he wants to bring in.”

Emenalo is tipped for the same role with French Ligue1 champions Monaco.
