Chelsea appoint new head coach – Reports


Enzo Maresca has been named the new head coach of Chelsea, according to reports from British media on Thursday night.

The Daily Telegraph reported that the Italian coach has signed a five-year contract with an option for an additional year. This long-term agreement aims to provide stability for the club after a turbulent period under the leadership of American investors Behdad Eghbali and Todd Boehly.

Maresca, who previously served as Pep Guardiola’s assistant at Manchester City, successfully led Leicester City back to the Premier League after their relegation last season. His tactical approach and style of play have reportedly impressed the decision-makers at Chelsea.

Chelsea needed a new manager following their decision to part ways with Mauricio Pochettino, who spent only one season at Stamford Bridge. Other candidates for the position included Brentford’s Thomas Frank and Kieran McKenna, who guided Ipswich to promotion alongside Leicester.

Pochettino’s tenure ended despite a late-season surge that saw Chelsea finish sixth in the Premier League, securing a spot in the Europa Conference League.

However, the team fell short of qualifying for the Champions League and winning a trophy. Chelsea lost 1-0 to Liverpool in the League Cup final after extra time and narrowly missed out on the FA Cup final, losing 1-0 to Manchester City in the semi-finals.

Despite these setbacks, Pochettino’s team showed promise with five consecutive wins to close out the season, ensuring Chelsea’s participation in European competitions next year.
