Monaco part ways with sporting director Emenalo

Michael Emenalo has left his position as the sporting director of French club Monaco.

Emenalo was in the position with the Ligue 1 side for about two years, but Monaco announced he has been replaced by Olga Dementeva.

The Nigerian thanked Monaco management for the opportunity.

“I want to thank AS Monaco for giving me the opportunity to discover the French championship and wish the club and supporters a great 2019/2020,” Emenalo was quoted as saying on the club’s official website.

Emenalo left Chelsea as sporting director in November 2017 and was appointed by Monaco in the same month.

The 54-year-old spent a decade at Chelsea, after joining them in 2007, where he worked in the scouting and coaching departments.
