Leicester City midfielder Harry Winks hailed imminent CHELSEA boss Enzo Maresca as the best manager he’s ever played under.

We are all over the headlines this week after they make the big decision to get rid of Mauricio Pochettino after just one season and a sixth placed finish in the Premier League.

There has been so many names linked with a move to London over the last few days – and if you ask most fans – they have absolutely no idea who will be taking charge of the club over the next few months.

But now the 44-year-old, who spent a year as Pep Guardiola’s assistant at Manchester City before joining Leicester, is now the leading candidate to replace Mauricio Pochettino as Chelsea manager.

And Winks already predicted this season that Mareca is destined for success with an elite club.

‘He’s by far the best manager I’ve worked for,’ Winks told Sky Sports in March.

‘He’s incredible. I think everybody will say he’s going right to the top in [terms of] managerial stature. He’s got everything.

‘He’s a great man-manager. He’s tactically incredible, some of the decisions that he tells us to do before the game and how he views the match is something I’ve never experienced before in football.

‘So, yeah, it’s opened my eyes a lot to football in the way it’s played and the kind of Pep Guardiola style as well, I know he worked with for a long time.

‘I’m loving my football, it works perfectly for me. It’s exactly the kind of football that I want to play and buy into.

‘ I think since he has come in, I’ve learned so much and continue to do that.’
