The Italian coach aims to continue the winning mentality at Chelsea, understanding the club’s high expectations.

“When you join a club like Chelsea, you have to know that it’s a club that has to win,” Maresca affirmed.

He said that he aims to compete with the top clubs fighting for titles. Maresca also highlighted the importance of creating a strong bond with Chelsea supporters.

“We need to create as soon as possible the right mentality, the right culture that the fans can be proud of,” he explained.

The coach noted his aims to implement an aggressive style both on and off the ball to forge a connection between the fans and the team. Maresca added that he looks forward to working closely with the players.

“It’s always different when you spend day by day with the person,” he noted, stating the importance of building relationships beyond what can be observed in games.

In his message to Chelsea fans, Maresca called for patience and support.

“Just trust the process, trust the idea. Being behind the team, for sure we’re going to enjoy our journey,” he said.
