The management of Leicester City has announced that it has appointed the former Liverpool scout Eduardo Macia. The Spaniard is the new head of the unit of Scouts of the English champion.
He replaced Steve Walsh, who was one of the architects of the spectacular success last season. Walsh just wears a `fault` for hits like Cante, Jamie Vardi, and Riyad Marez. However, he quit the team over the summer, after Everton tempt him with their offer and now performs the functions of a football director there.
The 42-year-old Macia is well known Claudio Ranieri, with whom he worked in Valencia. The Spaniard built a reputation with his stays in Olympiakos, Fiorentina, and Real Betis.
In English football, he was introduced by Rafael Benitez, who hired him to work at Liverpool in 2006.
