MANCHESTER CITY Under-23s boss Enzo Maresca has been appointed Head Coach of Italian side Parma.

The 41-year-old took charge of City’s U23s last August and led them to the Premier League 2 title for the first time. Prior to that, he had been assistant at Sevilla, West Ham and Ascoli.

As a player, Maresca represented giants including Juventus, Fiorentina and Sevilla and won the Scudetto, two Uefa Cups, a European Super Cup, an Italian Super Cup, a Spanish Cup, a Spanish Super Cup and Serie B.

The Italian was highly regarded by City manager Pep Guardiola, who said last month: “Not only has the team (the U23s) showed incredible consistency, they have played brilliant football.”

Danny Walker is City’s U23s assistant, having been promoted from U15/16s lead last summer. Parma were relegated from Serie A last season after finishing bottom of the table.

Their President, Kyle J. Krause, tweeted: "Very excited to welcome Enzo Maresca as our new coach. I cannot wait for next season."
