Manchester City U-23 boss Enzo Maresca reportedly to leave for Parma

Manchester City U-23 head coach Enzo Maresca is set to leave the club to take up a position Parma.

According to Sky Sports Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Maresca will depart City to join Italian club Parma, who finished bottom of the Serie A table. Former manager Roberto D’Aversa left his position with the Italian team shortly after the final day of the league campaign.

Maresca, a former Italian youth international, is now expected to take over the vacant manager role at Parma. The 41-year-old coach was hired by City last year to take over the club’s U-23 side, who this season won the Premier League 2 title.

The former Sevilla and West Ham United coach is yet to take a manager role for a senior team. However Maresca is highly rated amongst his colleagues. As per the Sack Race, the Italian once prepared the Hammers tactically for a match against Chelsea, which they won.

First, there was Patrick Vieira, then there was Mikel Arteta, and now there is Maresca.

City have an impressive record of former coaches going into the world of management and making a name for themselves. Maresca is the latest name to make the leap, and like Vieira and Arteta, the Italian could find success in his new venture.

Maresca will be joining a club that needs a new direction, with Parma looking for promotion back to Serie A next season.

And given the Italian coach’s knowledge of the league as well as his style of management, the former midfielder could be a revelation for the Emilia-Romagna club.
