Leicester City manager gives big update on Enzo Maresca’s future

“We are focused on Leicester and at the moment there is no other option,” Alvarez told Spain’s Canal Sur Radio. “He loves Sevilla, just like the Sevilla fans love him because he was very important in the history of the club. I imagine their paths will cross (in the future).”

Alvarez first met Maresca in Sevilla when the fitness trainer was starting his career and the Italian was a player for the La Liga side. Even then, he suspected that Maresca would become a manager.

“He’s very methodical and organized,” Alvarez said. “I was pleasantly surprised, but it’s true that when we had him as a player, he was already restless in those aspects.
