Will Enzo Maresca be at Leicester City next year with big clubs watching closely?

Enzo Maresca has been a revolution at Leicester City. With that, significant interest has been seen from big clubs looking for their own revolutions. However, will the Italian be at the King Power next year should a club move for him?

The short answer is - hopefully - yes. Unless the Foxes fail to acheive promotion, I see little evidence that either the manager or club would be interested in an immediate shift in club hierarchy. After all, it was only last campaign we had the atrocious end to Brendan Rodgers' long and successful tenure with the club, and the short interim appointment of Dean Smith: there is little appetite for change.

That being said, the fact remains an EFL Championship side with with a disgruntled and divided fanbase is perhaps a less attractive opportunity for a manager looking to build a career. Or, perhaps it is the best chance to prove yourself. So, let us see whether the boss has actually proved himself thus far, or if Leicester would do well to cash in on a move for the head coach.

Leicester City's Italian boss' record

43 games played, 91 points gained, just two points clear at the summit of the Championship. With a positive 42 goal difference and an 1.82 in expected goals per 90, Maresca's men have scored more, created more, and gained more points than any other team. This sounds remarkably optimistic.

However, not everything is quite so cheery. In their last 12 Championship fixtures, the Foxes have secured just five wins, one draw (16 pts), yet conceded six matches to their opposition with five of those being by single goal margins. There are two concerns in my mind, both of which relate back to the head coach.
