Leicester appoint Enzo Maresca as manager

by | Jun 16, 2023 | Football

Enzo Maresca has been chosen as the new manager of Leicester on a contract that will last for three years. Maresca has decided to depart from his position in Pep Guardiola’s coaching team at Manchester City, where they achieved a treble-winning season. His decision to join Leicester is driven by his desire to assist the team in their quest to secure promotion from the Championship in the upcoming season.

Following Brendan Rodgers’ departure in April, Dean Smith took over as the manager of Leicester in an attempt to prevent the team from being relegated last season. However, despite his efforts, Leicester couldn’t avoid relegation. Now, Enzo Maresca, an Italian coach, has been appointed as the successor to Dean Smith. Smith was given a temporary contract until the end of the season, but Leicester has decided to bring in Maresca for a longer-term solution.

Leicester chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha expressed his satisfaction with the appointment of Enzo Maresca as the team’s new manager. Srivaddhanaprabha stated that Maresca possesses a unique blend of character, approach, and ambition that aligns perfectly with the footballing direction Leicester aims to pursue.

“Enzo’s profile has stood out to us for some time – a feeling that was only enhanced upon meeting him and listening to his enthusiasm for the challenge ahead. I have no doubt he will be warmly welcomed by our supporters and that together we can reset the club’s course towards future success.”

“His philosophy has been built over a rich and varied career, including an outstanding education as a coach, and fits with the vision we have for this next chapter in Leicester City’s history.
