Enzo Maresca connection
Doyle and Maresca have previously worked together during the City boss’ time with Man City’s development squad. Maresca was head coach of the young Man City team in the 2020/21 season, leading them to their first Premier League 2 title.

“In terms of style, he’s comfortable and composed in possession and able to receive the ball in tight areas and release without getting flustered,” he said. “He has a superb range of passing, including the ability to hit long diagonals to land on a sixpence with a wand of a left foot.”
