Mourinho won't work with Emenalo at Chelsea

Michael Emenalo faces the axe as Chelsea football director should Jose Mourinho make a return.

Michael Emenalo faces the axe as Chelsea football director should Jose Mourinho make a return.

Real Madrid coach Mourinho is Chelsea's new first-choice target to take charge next season after Pep Guardiola snubbed them in favour of a switch to Bayern Munich last month.

The London Evening Standard says Mourinho will want to be in complete control of team affairs from top to bottom but owner Roman Abramovich has a number of key advisors, including technical director Emenalo.

It is likely the latter would have to go for Mourinho to come back, although the Nigerian is in a vulnerable position anyway due to the inconsistent form of the squad this season.
