In a club statement shared on the club’s website, the London outfit confirmed that Maresca is the new manager, having signed a five-year contract with the club till 2029.

The Italian tactician began his managerial career working with the Manchester City development squad as a manager before he left for Italy for a Parma job in 2020.

After a season with the club, Maresca was sacked following his failure to return the Italian outfit to the Italian top-flight.

Following his brilliant campaign with the Foxes, Maresca attracted interest from top clubs in Europe and was in the running for the Chelsea role after the departure of Mauricio Pochettino.

The highly-rated manager saw off the competition from former Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi and immediate past Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel to become the Blues manager.

He will be tasked to return the Blues to gears in the English top tier after a disappointing run in the past two seasons.
