Enzo Maresca was appointed as manager of our EDS group in August 2020.
The 40-year-old Italian enjoyed a highly successful near 20-year playing career, representing a host of Clubs including Juventus, with whom he won both Serie A and the Italian Super Cup, and Sevilla where Maresca was part of the Spanish side that won five major honours including two UEFA Cups and the Copa del Rey.
An energetic midfielder, Enzo also represented Malaga and Olympiakos as well as spending two years playing in England with West Bromwich Albion between 1998 and 2000.
A former Italian Under-21 international, Maresca embarked on his coaching career in 2017 with Ascoli before then joining the backroom staff at Sevilla.
More latterly, Maresca was a highly respected member of Manuel Pellegrini’s coaching staff during the Chilean’s tenure at West Ham United.
He will be assisted by Danny Walker, who steps up from his previous role of U16s lead.
