Frank Lampard considered to replace Michael Emenalo as technical director

The former Nigerian worldwide, who joined Chelsea in 2007 and has been technical director since 2011, has already been linked with a position at Monaco.

But during his time at Chelsea, the likes of Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois, Cesar Azpilicueta and Willian were brought in from European clubs - although the club also drew flak over expensive flops and a lack of activity in recent windows.

Having worked on the coaching staff previously, Emenalo became a technical director in 2011 where his main responsibilities were focused on coordinating Chelsea's youth network in addition to player recruitment.

Emenalo was heavily involved with the club's scouting department, and a largely barren summer saw them miss out on a number of Conte's first-choice signings.

"Sources have suggested that Emenalo does not wish to engage in a three-way power battle with Conte and Granovskaia who are known not to see eye to eye".

Fall back this weekend for daylight saving time
After the war, the U.S. got rid of Daylight Saving Time, but, during WWII, it returned and ended up staying in the U.S. But, with MA attempting to mark the end of Daylight Saving Time, California might move to do the same - and it should.

"This has been a very hard decision to make, but one I believe is right for both myself and my family, and the club", reads a statement by Emenalo on Chelsea's official website.

"It is with regret that the owner and board of directors accepted Michael's resignation this week", chairman Bruce Buck said.

Emanalo, who has been at Chelsea for ten years, has chose to leave as his relationship with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte and Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia has broken down, with player recruitment seemingly the key issue. "We are sorry to see him go but understand his desire to move on and explore new challenges". I wish Chelsea every success and look forward to following the club's future triumphs from afar, ' he added.

The Nigerian was integral in identifying transfer targets, alongside Antonio Conte, and provide data on those targets before a final decision was made.
