Enzo Maresca named new Chelsea head coach

Chelsea confirmed the appointment of Enzo Maresca as their new head coach after sacking Mauricio Pochettino.

On Monday, Premier League club Chelsea announced that they have decided to appoint former Leicester City manager Enzo as their new head coach. Maresca has signed a five-year deal plus a ‘club option’ for an extra year with Chelsea.

Chelsea decided to part ways with Mauricio Pochettino after the team finished sixth in the Premier League. The 44-year-old Maresca is the fifth Chelsea manager since the summer of 2022.

Chelsea’s co-sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley said: “We are delighted to welcome Enzo to Chelsea. He has proven himself to be an excellent coach capable of delivering impressive results with an exciting and identifiable style.

Enzo has deeply impressed us in our discussions leading up to his appointment. His ambitions and work ethic align with those of the club. We thoroughly look forward to working with him.”

“To join Chelsea, one of the biggest clubs in the world, is a dream for any coach. It is why I am so excited by this opportunity,” Maresca told Chelsea’s official website.

I look forward to working with a very talented group of players and staff to develop a team that continues the club’s tradition of success and makes our fans proud.”

Maresca spent the 2020/21 season as Manchester City’s Elite Development team manager and later joined Italian side Parma. He returned to Man City in 2022 as one of Pep Guardiola’s assistants. The Italian coach was appointed Leicester City manager in 2023 and guided them back to the Premier League after winning the Championship in 2024.
