Former Chelsea Technical Director Michael Emenalo says working at the club was tough but hard work made him Roman Abramovich’s close ally.

The former Nigeria international quit his post last month after spending 10 years at Stamford Bridge.

According to Emenalo, in a chat with The Nation, he had built great friendship with former Blues coach, Avram Grant.

“I also made friendship with Avram Grant in Israel and it was Grant who encouraged me to come to Chelsea when I was working for some soccer academy and I started recruiting for Chelsea,” he said.

“I was involved with Mikel Obi transfer from Lyn in 2005, and Grant said I should come full time to restructure the youth programme, which is the kind of things I love to do.”

He said, “Secondly, I take my job seriously, even as a player, I tried to be active even outside the field.

“That I am considered the second most powerful person in Chelsea is flattering.

“I wanted to build something good for myself and since I was given the opportunity in Chelsea I had to give it all I had. I guess that paid off nicely for me.

“(Roman) Abramovich loved what I was doing and he encouraged me. He wants to build a great team. He is a great boss and friend too.”
