Ligue 1 By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 22/12/2017

Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev is delighted with the appointment of Michael Emenalo as new technical director.

The Nigerian was snapped up by the Ligue 1 defending champions Monaco after his resignation from Chelsea following over a decade with the Premier League holders.

Vasilyev said, “I have known him for four years. Since the start, I had asked him to come here. He knows perfectly the football, he knows how to handle pros, stars. His investment in the Chelsea academy convinced me.

“Of course, there are not many academy players in the Chelsea first team but that is not the policy of the club. Michael won the Youth League at Chelsea (2015 and 2016).

He is passionate about developing youngsters."

Emenalo era in Chelsea saw them lifting Champions League, Premier League, Europa League, FA Cup, and  League Cup.
