Ex-Chelsea Technical Director Emenalo Sends Message To Nigerian Coach After Turkish Cup Win
Former Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo has congratulated Eddie Newton on winning the Turkish Cup final.

The London-born Nigerian football tactician claimed his first title as a head coach, guiding Trabzonpor to beat Aytemiz Alanyaspor 2-0 in the Cup final on Wednesday evening.

Emenalo and Newton worked together at Chelsea for five years before they moved on to pastures new, with the ex-Super Eagles star joining Monaco as sporting director in 2017, while the one-time Chelsea midfielder was appointed Trabzonspor assistant manager in February 2020.

Emenalo has labelled Newton a 'special talent' and has expressed his happiness at the job done by the Trabzonspor coach.

Writing on Instagram, Emenalo stated : "congratulations to @eddienewton24 who has just won the Turkish Cup as Head Coach for @trabzonspor .

"For those of us who know you and your work it’s just a confirmation of your hard work and special talent as a coach. Well done! #champion #winner #greathumanbeing".

One of the top talent spotters in the world, Emenalo is currently unemployed following his departure from Monaco in 2019.
