PSA: Chelsea have a Technical Director

This is a manager. Not a DoF.

Since Jose Mourinho re-joined Chelsea, it seems as though the world has completely forgotten that Michael Emenalo is still in his job. Transfer stories talk about Mourinho's plans for the club and Mourinho securing players without ever seeming to note that the Blues have a technical director whose job it is to oversee big picture strategy and transfers.

Here's but one example, from the metaphorical pen of the profoundly useless Jamie Jackson:

Mourinho was convinced he had secured the transfer of Rooney before the Portuguese realised that United's determined stance that the forward would not be sold to a domestic rivals would not change.

This sort of thing is either the papers' way of telling us that there's been a big shakeup at Chelsea, an idea that sounds cute but rather stretches credibility when one looks at their general tolerance for subtlety, or a sign that everyone has completely forgotten how this club operates. So, assuming the latter:

DEAR EVERYONE CHELSEA HAVE A DIRECTOR OF FOOTBALL. PLEASE WRITE BETTER. THANKS.

Love,
Graham
