Further, the resignation is thought to be due to differences with influential director Marina Granovskaia over Antonio Conte and several key transfer decisions, and the general direction in which the club was headed.

Former Nigerian worldwide Michael Emenalo resigned from his role as Chelsea's technical director on Monday, ending a 10-year association with the club.

The former Nigeria global first joined "The Blues" as opposition scout under manager Avram Grant and rose to become technical director.

The move to bring his 10-year association with the club to an end may be viewed in some quarters as a victory for Conte, but Emenalo said he remained supportive of the Italian who he helped to appoint last year.

Although Emenalo's relationship with Conte was not hard, this is a club with power struggles going on off the pitch.

Reportedly, Abramovich was reliant on Emenalo for advice - he was one of the few people that the owner trusted.

On the pitch, Chelsea bounced back from their midweek loss to Roma in the Champions League with a deserved 1-0 win over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, with Alvaro Morata's header the difference between the sides.

Speaking on Emenalo's departure, Conte said: "I am very sorry to see Michael leave Chelsea, and I would like to thank him for all his help and support since I arrived at this club". He has had a tremendous impact on the club over the past 10 years and this is evident in everything we have achieved.

Emenalo's decade at Stamford Bridge coincided with the club claiming three Premier League titles, the FA Cup, the League Cup, the Europa League and, in 2012, the Champions League while 10 managers have come and gone.
