Angry Valletta fans show up at training session

Saturday, April 3, 2010, 10:44

A group of around 50 Valletta supporters showed up at the Valletta FC’s team training session on Thursday evening to voice their frustration after last Saturday’s performance against Birkirkara in which Valletta lost 1-0.

The group of supporters started to gather at around 6.20pm at the Melita FC training grounds where Valletta usually hold their daily sessions. This move by the Valletta fans was considered as a sign of protest and disapproval towards the players and Coach Ton Canen after their dismal show last Saturday.

People who were present for Thursday’s training session said that the Valletta fans started to shout out at some Valletta players with phrases like “Aħjar tiċċaqilqu hekk waqt il-logħob imisskom tistħu” others had more harsh comments toward the Valletta players and shouted from outside the perimeter fence “Araw kif se ġġiebulna l-League issa ja qatta’ mejtin………..”.

These comments alerted players like Jamie Pace and Luke Dimech who approached the angry and disappointed fans and tried to discuss peacefully but to no avail. When the players approached the fence more and more personal insults were shouted by the majority of those present.

Sportinmalta.com can reveal that after some time both Canen and Captain Gilbert Agius spoke to the small group and promised them their best efforts for Saturday’s U*Bet FA Tropfy QF match against Birkirkara and also their utmost commitment for the last 5 BOV Prmeier League games.

No incidents were reported after the training session and thus the players and technical staff could leave the Melita FC ground in peacefully.

It is not yet known if the Valletta supporters will organise a formal boycott for today’s Trophy match against Birkirkara.
