New Chelsea arrival has a ‘champions mentality’ which overlooks inexperience

One new Chelsea arrival reportedly has a ‘champions mentality’ which will overlook his lack of experience after recent confirmation of the done deal.

Chelsea have a very long season ahead next season after a bumpy ride for the last two seasons. The owners will want to see vast improvements and much more consistency going forward into a new season.

And the man they have chosen to lead the way for them after parting company with Mauricio Pochettino at the end of last season, is former Leicester City boss Enzo Maresca.

The Championship promotion winner was officially confirmed as the new Chelsea head coach yesterday in what became one of the worst kept secrets in football for the last week or so. But a lot has been said about whether the risk Chelsea are taking here is just way too big and it could truly come back to bite them in the rear end.

Only time will tell whether the risk will pay off, but Maresca has a real lack of experience having only ever managed one full season in senior football.

His mentality outweighs his inexperience

Apparently though, his mentality makes up for his lack of experience to the Chelsea decision makers, according to a report this week.

This is according to The Daily Mail, who claim Chelsea were willing to overlook Enzo Maresca’s inexperience as they feel he has a ‘champions mentality’.

Well, let’s hope that champions mentality helps him make the huge jump up to manage a club like Chelsea, a club who has won it all and is enriched in a history of success and winning trophies, and with so much recent triumphs that the fan base just expect to happen again as soon as possible.

It is certainly not a job for the faint-hearted, and Maresca has a real task on his hands.

  1. If memory serves Mikel Arteta had exactly ZERO managerial experience and has proven that doesn’t really matter much if you’ve got the goods. Given that though both worked under Pep one can understand why the club were willing take a little leap of faith given the general dearth of managers with top-level experience available this summer. I mean, if Bayern are taking a manager who just got relegated then why shouldn’t we be after one who just got promoted?! Given the choice, I’d certainly be happier with the latter than the former!
