Why Leicester fans aren't that bothered Enzo Maresca left

After a year since his appointment Enzo Maresca guided Leicester back to the promise land of the Premier League and has moved on to arguably bigger and better things himself joining Chelsea. With Leicester receiving compensation in the region of 8-10 million. What's next?

Despite guiding the foxes back to the Premier League some fans were losing patients with slow possession based football and wanted the manager to adapt a more dynamic attacking football which saw the club win the EPL and finish in European places in consecutive seasons.

Nonetheless the board and hierarchy of LCFC wants a manager that plays modern possession based football since the title winning side, with managers like Claude Puel, Brendan Rodgers and Enzo Maresca all having similar philosophies of retaining the ball and building up from the back.  

With Enzo looking to build his own philosophy off the blueprint left by his mentor Pep Guardiola, by controlling a majority of the ball and not liking transition football, which suited Leicester so well in the Birmingham City away and the mauling of Southampton home and away performances.

With the general consensus of fans on social media it’s that their side is winning but it’s winning in the most entertaining fashion where they will be on the edge of their seats. Looking to escape from whatever troubles they’re having and enjoy their team scoring some goals.

However it’s important to note that not all Leicester fans had this mindset when it came to the style of football, some fans bought into the manager’s philosophy of controlling the ball for a majority of the game and some did not. 

The Italian manager stated multiple times after games that he would leave if the boos and jeers around the stadium continued after a disagreement with the style of football Leicester should be playing especially in the games they were trailing at the King Power. Where they could have been more dynamic and having a more attacking impetus with the east Midlanders having nothing to lose at that stage.

With all that being said, the Foxes owe Enzo credit as he was able to stop the rotting feeling around the club after relegation and the Rodgers era. He turned the club back into one supporters can proudly call their own. An instant return to the top-flight, given the financial situation, will be one the board and fans alike can hopefully enjoy.
