Nigeria’s Michael Emenalo Quits His Job As Monaco’s Sporting Director

Nigeria

Former Nigeria international defender, Michael Emenalo has left his role as Monaco’s sporting director by mutual consent, on a day that the club signed Nigerian forward, Henry Onyekuru from Everton.

The 54-year-old joined the French Ligue 1 outfit in November 2017 after quitting a similar role at English side Chelsea. Monaco only avoided relegation from the top flight on the final day last season and the Principality side suffered a 3-0 home loss to Lyon on the opening day of the current season.

“I want to thank AS Monaco for giving me the opportunity to discover the French championship and wish the Club and supporters a great season 2019/2020,” Emenalo said.

He joined Chelsea in 2007 under Avram Grant, for whom he played at Maccabi Tel Aviv and spent a decade in West London. Emenalo worked in both the scouting and coaching departments at Chelsea before being promoted to technical director in 2011.

 

During his time at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea won the Champions League in 2012, plus three Premier League titles, three FA Cups, the League Cup and Europa League.  Emenalo, who played for Notts County in the 1990s and for the San Jose Clash in the first MLS game, represented Nigeria at the 1994 World Cup.

Man Utd Resume Technical Director Search As Fan Discontent Sweeps Social Media

Manchester United will turn their attention to appointing a technical director now their summer transfer window business is complete.

United’s initial intention was to make an appointment before Jose Mourinho’s successor as manager was confirmed.

But for this window, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer operated within the existing recruitment structure.

The club spent £140m on the signings of defenders Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka and winger Daniel James.

When Solskjaer was given the job on a permanent basis on 28 March, club insiders said the role would be filled by the start of the season.

Former players Darren Fletcher and Rio Ferdinand spoke to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward a number of weeks ago.

Although it is understood there has been no further face-to-face contact, Woodward has kept the pair in the loop over changes to the timescale for an appointment.

No offer has been made and it is thought the role would not involve negotiating with or signing transfer targets.

Social media unrest

Not everyone thinks United have had a good transfer window.

In particular, many fans on social media feel United made an error in not attempting to sign midfielder Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon.

It was also suggested their interest in Argentina forward Paulo Dybala was used as a smokescreen given they have been unable to sign an additional forward, as it had been obvious for some time that Romelu Lukaku would be leaving at some stage.

At one point on Thursday, #WoodwardOut – calling for the executive vice-chairman to leave his job – was trending in the UK with more than 50,000 tweets, second only to #DeadlineDay in terms of football-related tweets.

United have failed to mount a sustained Premier League title challenge in the six seasons since Woodward replaced former chief executive David Gill.

Fan @SteveCapes94, who has just over 100 Twitter followers, said: “If you’re in charge of the world’s biggest football club and haven’t come close to a league title in your six-year time in charge. You have to look at yourself and admit you can’t do your job.” This tweet has been liked more than 1,500 times.

The Glazers Out movement, which is trying to generate enough support to unseat United’s owners, called the club’s transfer window business “abysmal”.

United ‘need time’

United regard their summer outlay as significant and believe, after last season’s sixth-placed finish, 32 points behind champions Manchester City, it was always known it would take more than a single window to rectify their problems.

They also point to a number of new contracts – those for Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial which have already been done, and David de Gea’s, which is due to be completed in the coming weeks – as proof of a rebuild.

In addition, they feel the performances of 17-year-old striker Mason Greenwood in particular during the club’s pre-season tour of Australia and Asia offers hope for the future and underlines their continuing commitment to developing first-team players from their academy.
