Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo has "shocked" the club after reportedly resigning from his position at Stamford Bridge.
Emenalo, part of Nigeria's squad to the 1994 World Cup, was at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as Chelsea beat Manchester United 1-0, and concerns were raised when Conte snubbed him after the game.
Director Marina Granovskaia said Emenalo "played an important role during the most successful period in the club's history, helping make Chelsea the club it is today". I wish Chelsea every success and look forward to following the club's future triumphs from afar, ' he added.
According to a report on the UK Telegraph, Emenalo chose to leave after declining not to engage in a three-way power battle with current Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and Marina Granovskaia who are known not to see eye to eye.
