AS Monaco have announced that Michael Emenalo is stepping down as sporting director by mutual consent. The move follows the Ligue 1 team’s disastrous 0-3 loss against Lyon on Friday.
The Monegasque club announced on Tuesday that the 54-year-old will not remain in the Principality. “AS Monaco thanks Michael Emenalo for his commitment and wishes him all the best for future projects,” the club said.
Emenalo took on the role in November 2017 after quitting a similar position with Chelsea. ASM have confirmed a reorganising of the sporting sector around a new technical director. Former Barcelona doctor Lluis Til-Perez has been appointed chief medical officer, while Olga Dementeva will oversee the club’s medical department as a whole, “among other things”. Deputy CEO Oleg Petrov will remain in charge of recruitment.
