Emenalo admits the club's ideas about the squad and Mourinho's were similar when the he first returned from Real Madrid.
"The first thing to say is we are happy to have Jose [Mourinho] back," Emenalo told chelseafc.com.
"He is a very good decision maker and a trusted component in the decision-making process due to what he has achieved here. He came in with clear ideas of what he wanted to do, which were not dissimilar from what we were already in the process of doing, and that helped.
"I am very happy with the squad we have created. You can't always get exactly what you want but in the main we were very close.
"With the ambition of the club and the owner, and his goodwill in following that ambition with investment, we try to have a short-term and a long-term project and we feel we are satisfying that."
