Michael Emenalo has quit his role as the Sporting Director at Monaco after about two years in charge.

This was contained in a statement on the website of the Ligue 1 side.

The club announced that Emenalo has been replaced by Olga Dementeva.

Reacting to his exit, the Nigerian thanked Monaco for giving him the opportunity to serve.

“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.

The Nigerian was appointed in November 2017 after leaving Chelsea in the same month.

Monaco narrowly avoided relegation in 2018/19 on the final day, and were beaten 3-0 by Lyon in their season opener on Friday.

Emenalo spent a decade at Chelsea, after joining them in 2007, where he worked in the scouting and coaching departments.

During his time at Stamford Bridge, the West London club won the Champions League, three Premier League titles, three FA Cups, the League Cup and the Europa League.
