Michael Emenalo wasn’t a very popular man at Chelsea, and so when he left the club in 2017, it’s fair to say that fans were unanimously delighted.
He was responsible for the majority of Chelsea’s transfers during a period that saw several disappointing acquisitions and departures, and so it wasn’t much of a surprise to see him leave the club.
However, since his departure, the Blues have been without a replacement – though according to the Evening Standard earlier this week, the club are working on finding one.
It’s a move that would be very popular amongst fans, at least according to a recent poll. We recently asked fans whether the German would be a good fit in the position – and a whopping 88% of fans responded with a resounding yes.
Clearly, Ballack is a popular man and, indeed, he is a popular choice for this role – and it’s easy to see why.
He’s a football man. He’s been across the world, and so he knows what the game is about and knows where to look for the best talent.
Furthermore, he also knows Chelsea. He’d serve as a brilliant connection between the club and the players, whilst he also would be able to understand what happens from the perspective of a fan.
The German would, of course, be a risk, given that he hasn’t had a job in this capacity before, but he could be just what the club need.
