Emenalo, now sportingdirector at Monaco, resigned from his position as techincal directotr in November, in the wake of putting in 10 years with the Stamford Bridge outfit.

The Nigerian acted as an intermediary between Conte and the Chelsea board and was a trusted aide to Russian owner, Roman Abramovich.

Asked if Emenalo’s decision to leave had made his job more difficult, Conte replied: “Yes. “To lose Michael, it was a big loss for us. Yes. I think, I think so. Also because, Michael did a great job for this club for many years.

“Last season he helped me a lot during the season. This season, until he left, he helped me a lot. For me, for sure, it was a big loss.”

Chelsea are yet to replace Emenalo with club director, Marina Granovskaia, assuming more direct control of recruitment strategy
