Since 2015 especially, Emenalo has been decided upon by fans as the man responsible for ruining Chelsea's performance in the transfer market. He has played an important role during the most successful period in the club's history, helping make Chelsea the club it is today. I wish Chelsea every success and look forward to following the club's future triumphs from afar'. We are sorry to see him go but understand his desire to move on and explore new challenges'.
