Amun Advises NFF On Eagles’ Coach -Warns Against Indigenous Sentiments Former secretary general of Nigeria Football Federation, Fanny Amun has advised the soccer body’s current executive committee and officials to look beyond indigenous sentiments in deciding the next coach of the Super Eagles. The NFF have claimed that they have offered a new contract to Stephen Keshi, after initially stating their resolve to hire a foreign coach for the Eagles, even though that decision was shunned after they came under pressure to have a Nigerian lead the team. But Amun, who coached Nigeria’s U17’s to the FIFA U17 World Cup in Japan in 1993, says the NFF shouldn’t be bothered about sentiments of race and nationality, and hire the best man for the job. “Michael Emenalo is a Nigerian who works at Chelsea as Technical Director. Nobody looks at his race or his nationality. “So why should we be too concerned with where the Super Eagles coach come from? My opinion is that if you’re good, you’re good. “If ...

As soon as Frank Lampard turned down Chelsea's offer of 1 year extension at 100k p/w, several meetings were held to discuss his potential replacement. Marina Granovskaia, Jose Mourinho, Michael Emenalo, Ron Gourlay and various other board members took part in a series of meetings. Mourinho initially recommended Paul Pogba or Koke as his candidate while Cesc Fabregas, Modric, Ivan Rakitic came up from others. The final shortlist consists of Koke, Pogba and Fabregas. One last meeting was held in last week after the club inquired about Koke, Pogba and Cesc. Koke has a €60m release clause, Juventus told Pogba will be sold for atleast €66m while Barcelona were willing to sell Cesc for €33m. Fabregas was finalized as he has past PL experience and was considered a "less risky buy" given that he is available for half of the value of other two candidates. Jose Mourinho and Cesc are ready to work with one another. Both the club and manager regard Cesc as a much more feasible buy. Cesc Fabregas joining Chelsea ...
KENNETH OMERUO SIGNS A NEW 3YEARS CONTRACT EXTENSION Nigeria World Cup-bound defender Kenneth Omeruo has agreed a new 3yrs contract with English Premier League side Chelsea,AfricanFootball.com can exclusively report. “We have agreed a new three-year contract for Kenneth,” disclosed his adviser Chika Akujobi to AfricanFootball.com. “We have all seen the draft of the improved contract&the boy is happy about it. “It’s a good contract & we are all happy about how Chelsea have warmed up to him & made him feel very much at home.” Akujobi added: “Everything is not all about money because Chelsea have really taken care of the player.” The Chelsea negotiation team was led by sporting director Michael Emenalo,who incidentally was a former Nigeria World Cup star. He further informed that Omeruo will resume with the Chelsea main squad after the World Cup in Brazil. Omeruo’s contract at Chelsea was to run out in June 2015. He now has a deal running till June 2018. Omeruo operates mainly as a CB but i ...

Of the 30 players Chelseahad out on loan this term, we pick four who could feature in the first team in 2014-15. At one stage this past season, Chelsea had over 30 players out on loan. The list included notable names such as Victor Moses, Marko Marin, Christian Atsu and Patrick van Aanholt. Michael Emenalo, who is the club’s Technical Director, is in charge of selecting where these players go and decide whether they are capable of breaking into the first team. With so many players out on loan, it is difficult to judge who could play for Chelsea regularly, and who is destined to leave the club without making an impression at Stamford Bridge. Moreover, with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play policy controlling the spending of big clubs in Europe, many of these players could be an important source of income as they could be offloaded permanently. Below, we have picked four players who have the calibre to break into Jose Mourinho’s team next season and have also marked them based on their performances this camp ...
MAN UTD LOST MILLIONS LETTING GO WHIZKID DUO What price a Manchester United midfield of Paul Pogba and Mats Daehli now? The reasons for Pogba's defection to Juventus are no secret. But what of Daehli? It was exciting to see this little Norwegian, still just 19, push and coax his senior teammates in Cardiff's draw with Stoke City last week. Then Sunday, before they were eventually overrun at Sunderland, Daehli again was Cardiff's best player. Bluebirds fans are witnessing the beginning of a great career. Yes, Daehli turned down the chance to re-sign for United in January, preferring to be reunited with his former Molde coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the CCS. But he shouldn't have been put in that position in the first place. It was one of David Moyes' first calls as United manager to sell the midfield schemer. Not loan him to Molde - as no doubt Michael Emenalo would've done if he was a Chelsea player - but sell him. Now Daehli, with all his invention and craft, has been lost to United. Is Ander Herrera rea ...

With this in mind, the manager hopes to stay at Stamford Bridge for longer than he did during his first spell in charge, which he considers will have a beneficial effect on his relationship with his players. He explains why this step in his career is built around a long-term plan, in contrast to his previous roles across Europe.'It starts to be a different job because of my own project of life,' says Mourinho.'Everything for a manager should start with a project of life and a project of career. I have had my career project since the beginning: I wanted to win competitions in the three big footba ...

6 Jan 16, 2014 8:37:00 AM The Blues have 22 players out on loan with four more likely to follow this month, and the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Thibaut Courtois and Lucas Piazon are making a big impact When Nemanja Matic next runs onto a football pitch in a Chelsea shirt, almost three years, two transfers and about 50 million euros in spent cash after his last appearance, no one will argue it was all part of the plan. Had the Serb not been deemed expendable in the €25 million deal which brought David Luiz to Stamford Bridge from Benfica in January 2011 and inconsequential enough to make the insertion of a buy-back clause seem unnecessary, Roman Abramovich need not have reached so deep into his pockets to acquire the powerful, dominating midfielder Jose Mourinho craved. Yet Matic’s career path, leaving Chelsea to forge his reputation before returning to enjoy his peak years, is one the club fully expects – and indeed hopes – will soon become a road more taken. MATIC RETURNS PROFILE: 'Strong, tireless & ...
Chelsea have promoted Michael Emenalo from his position as chief scout to assistant first team coach. Emenalo, who has been with the Blues since October 2007, succeeds Ray Wilkins in the role and Chelsea say the move is "recognition of his efforts". The 45-year-old represented Nigeria at the 1994 World Cup and won 14 caps. Emenalo, who briefly played for Notts County in the mid-1990s, will continue to scout for the first team while he updates his coaching qualifications. The Nigerian's playing career also took him to the United States, Spain, Germany and Israel.
MOURINHO THE MASTER OF HIS OWN DESTINY Jose Mourinho appears to have much more autonomy as Chelsea boss in 2014 than in his first spell with the club back in 2004. As Jose Mourinho sets about devising a new blueprint for success at Stamford Bridge, it has been interesting to see that so far this season it appears to be "his" masterplan being implemented and not that of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and his advisers on the playing side, Director of Football Operations, Mike Forde and Technical Director, Michael Emenalo. In the past, it has been a bone of contention for many followers of the London club that those who counsel with Mr Abramovich, principally Chairman Bruce Buck, Chief Executive Officer Ron Gourlay (and Peter Kenyon before him), Director Eugene Tenenbaum along with Forde and Emenalo, do so in a blinkered manner that often shows a complete lack of respect for those who have made and make Chelsea Football Club what it is -- namely the supporters and the players and managers they fete. In a dec ...

CHELSEA IN THE TRANSFER MARKET The Special One will be back,we all expect. But while Jose Mourinho rebuilt the side that had finished 2nd under Claudio Ranieri,&turned Chelsea into the best side in the country,it may be different this time round. Mourinho wants to call the shots but the 2013 version of the Blues is not the same beast as the 2004 incarnation. That Chelsea did not even have a Technical Director,let alone one as powerful as Michael Emenalo is now – the man who is in charge of the club's player recruitment policy. And where Mourinho fostered a close&strong relationship with then-chief executive Peter Kenyon – who single-handedly kept the internal problems under some sort of control for the final 15months of the manager's 1st reign – he may find incumbent Ron Gourlay is perhaps less likely to take the side of the manager in any disputes. What is evident,unquestioned,is that Mourinho inherits a small&unbalanced squad,which must be significantly replenished. At the same time,he has to make ...

player-managers. Glenn Hoddle (1993-96), Ruud Gullit (1996-98) and Gianluca Vialli (1998-2000) all happily named themselves in their own starting lineups and all with a certain amount of success. In many ways, it makes even more sense these days. The role of a manager is now far beyond the powers of one man, unless it's an extraordinary man like Sir Alex Ferguson. Chelsea seem reluctant to devolve that much power to an individual anyway, which is why Jose Mourinho is unlikely to ever return. Abramovich has his own scout, Michael Emenalo. He runs the long-term transfer strategy and there are dozens of minions scuttling around Cobham with important-looking pieces of paper. Terry could appoint an experienced assistant, a good coaching team and then act in something of an executive role, delegating all but the most essential of tasks. The final benefit, for those of a conspiratorial bent, is that even if Terry's appointment fails in the short term, it will succeed in the long term. For years, Newcastle manage ...

Roman if you accept my terms of sacking Michael Emenalo and John Obi Mikel then I will take charge of Chelsea. I await your response
If Jose pops up at Chelsea, you'd imagine that's the end of Michael Emenalo. Jose shafted Real's Technical Director as well
This was a very good post on the forum on Chelsea Now I may be exaggerating this a little bit, but these are my viewpoints I've had for a while and I will stick to them. Also, I agree the 'Special One' is the only one who can guide us to success in the near future. He's a unique manager in every aspect. Now the issues: 1). Rafa Benitez as coach: Clearly the appointment of Rafa Benitez was never going to be accepted by Chelsea supporters, so the appointment was perplexing to start off with. Benitez had not had a managerial role for two years after he had been sacked by Inter Milan two years ago. Since then he was a media pundit in Dubai and he wasn't sort after by other clubs. To me this suggests that clubs know he's an overrated manager and that after the disasters of Liverpool at the end and with Inter Milan, he's not worth risking to have as a manager. What makes the appointment so much worse is the fact that he replaced a Chelsea legend who was respected and admired by Chelsea supporters. Since his app ...

Beat Wigan.. or else! Benitez on the brink at Chelsea after just two months in charge Rafa Benitez’s reign at Chelsea is on the brink after only two months as Roman Abramovich ponders the unthinkable. Benitez spent yesterday at his family home on the Wirral aware Abramovich is furious at the post-Christmas tailspin. The travelling Chelsea fans were unrelenting in the abuse that rained down on Benitez after Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Newcastle, which followed embarrassing draws at Swansea, Brentford and Reading. And while the Spaniard is not likely to be sacked yet – with fingers also being pointed at Technical Director Michael Emenalo for Chelsea’s unbalanced and under-sized squad – anything other than victory at home to Wigan on Saturday could see the trigger pulled. Benitez, whose relationship with Emenalo is understood to have cooled in the past month, knows that Abramovich does not tolerate failure and is prepared to do whatever he feels necessary. The Russian believes he has to act if there i ...

Benitez: "We are playing more games than anyone. In some positions we have only two or three players, that's the reality." That's Ron Gourlay, Bruce Buck and Michael Emenalo's faults. We currently have 22 players out on loan.
Michael Emenalo and Ron Gourlay are personal advisors of Roman. Roman is mentally insane when it comes to football.
I Man United fan just said to me "you are not our competition ,your competition is Spurs ,Everton ,Arsenal and Liverpool , ours is City " Any thoughts ? Here is mine We only have 15 first team players inc Cech and Turnbull ,we have 23 players on loan that we could really use but we missed the deadline to recall . The United fan is right we are not in their league anymore or City's because we have a very small squad which is full of tired players .. Thank you Michael Emenalo ,Bruce Buck and Ron Gourlay for putting us in such a mess .MR .

Roman Abramovich will take complete control of picking Chelsea’s next boss after complaining about being swayed into hiring Rafa Benitez. The Blues owner regrets employing the ex-Liverpool boss as interim manager after being advised by Technical Director Michael Emenalo, who pushed hard for the Spaniard to be appointed.
Demba Ba already looks an inspirational signing by Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez. Unlike Fernando Torres, Ba offers Chelsea the physical presence for their diminutive midfield to play around. And also in contrast to his Spanish rival, Ba can play with his back to goal, being a target for teammates to hit from deep and laying the ball off for the likes of Eden Hazard and Juan Mata as they buzz around him. The manner of victory at Stoke City shouldn't be dismissed. Chelsea's midfield fought Stoke for the right to play and with Ba constantly throwing himself into Ryan Shawcross and Robert Huth, the scoreline was well deserved. Benitez, Michael Emenalo, Piet de Visser or Roman Abramovich, whoever it was that recognised how Ba would complement the Blues midfield deserves a pat on the back. TORRES IN PEAK 'PHYSICAL' CONDITION Word from those who worked with Fernando Torres at Liverpool is that the Chelsea striker is in great, physical shape. His strength and conditioning at Chelsea is as good as it was at his pe ...

Chelsea to offer Pep £20m-a- season Roman Abramovich wants to offer former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola a £20 million-a-season contract to take over at Chelsea in the summer, ESPN can reveal. It is being suggested the Chelsea owner's 'trigger happy' attitude to managers - eight sacked in nine-and-a-half years - is putting off Guardiola, who is currently taking a year out of the game in New York after leaving the Nou Camp. Indeed, reports suggest that Technical Director Michael Emenalo is drawing up a backup list which includes Jurgen Klopp, however, ESPN has learned that Abramovich is determined to win the race for Guardiola, despite intense interest from PSG, AC Milan and Bayern Munich. With Europe's elite all keen to lure Guardiola, Abramovich plans to blow them all out of the water with a massive offer of a £20m-a- year, four year contract, plus bonuses that would easily ensure the Spaniard earns nearly £100m for his troubles and becomes the world's highest paid manager. But Guardiola's agent, J ...

Working under Abramovich easy compared to Liverpool, claims Benitez... "We have an owner, a Technical Director Michael Emenalo and a good [team of] staff. It's easy," "I don't have two owners who don't talk to each other, which was a problem [at Liverpool]."
Exclusive: Chelsea HAVE PUT Fernando Torres on sale and Abramovich has asked Michael Emenalo to make a short list of targets because Chelsea will buy another striker on January!!!
Pls Roman Abramovich, u are the owner of chelsea football club, we as fans may have some considerable advice towards moving the club forward,my advice here is that pls dont let Ashley Cole go, bcos he is @ his best as of know,he deserved 2 more years contract,his just 31 years old,as a defender he will still be vibrant even @ 33,b4 then Ryan Bertrand has develop fully as a world class defender and can be a good cover for the team,take a look @ the Italian defence, they use matured and experience people,R,DM, Bruce Buck,and Michael Emenalo,pls take note and act fast,lets not repeat that mistake we did in letting michael ballack go without a good replacement,which had efect to the entire team.thanks wishing my beloved club more premier and Champions League glories.UP CHELSEA, UP BLUES.
It was either Michael Essien or Michael Emenalo. Get your guesses in now...

Thorgan has talent. But will be a few years before he can break into senior team. While I was a bit skeptical of some of the early reports, this one is hard to argue with. Thorgan Hazard will be joining Chelsea along with his brother Eden, bringing the the Belgian contingent signed by Michael Emenalo to 8 in the last 12 months. He's a talented prospect, so it will be fun to watch him develop. Welcome to Chelsea Thorgan Hazard. Up blues
Interesting note I just discovered doing some research; Michael Emenalo was a teammate of Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova at Lleida in 97/98
European Champions Chelsea will make a shock £10million swoop for Wigan star Victor Moses. The talented former Crystal Palace winger – currently on international duty with Nigeria – was a major reason why Roberto Martinez’s side beat the drop last season, the Daily Mirror reports on Tuesday. Moses has refused to sign a new deal at the DW Stadium, putting Chelsea and other top teams on alert. Moses is a favourite of Chelsea’s top talent spotter, Michael Emenalo - a fellow Nigerian and the main man behind the new recruits for the Double winners. Latics boss Martinez does not want to lose his talisman, but chairman Dave Whelan has admitted that a big offer will be hard to resist. The signing of Moses would probably mean the end for Daniel Sturridge, who has fallen out of favour under Roberto Di Matteo.

Chelsea has agreed a fee of £38m for Porto's Brazilian forward Hulk. The deal is expected to be signed imminently, with personal terms and a medical reported to be mere formalities. Hulk, who scored twice in Brazil's recent friendly against the Denmark, looks set to bring Roman Abramovich's summer spending to a total of £70m already, with the £32m singing of Eden Hazard set to be confirmed. The 25-year old has scored 122 goals in just 200 career appearances, including 52 since joining Porto in 2008 Chelsea are currently in managerial limbo, with Abramovich hesitant to hand Roberto Di Matteo a full contract for next season. But the billionaire Chairman, with the help of influential Technical Director Michael Emenalo, is already setting out plans for next season after the Russian was reportedly disappointed by the fashion in which the London side managed to finally lift the Champions League trophy. Hulk is considered a player to excite the crowds, playing as either a striker or a right winger where he is ...
