Christian Caruana known as il-Boqli is a Balzan FC player and this is official. This site is informed that Caruana signed with Ivan Zammit’s team at 9pm this evening after he was given the release by Floriana in a strange move by Justin Attard and his UK based allies.

Christian Caruana says goodbye to Floriana

Not all the Floriana FC committee members agreed with Attard’s and Wright’s decision.

Mark Wright the Floriana coach and manager has been asking the committee to release players who are owned money by the Club or else settle dues without further dealy. can reveal that Caruana was owned €27,000 from Floriana for arrears and a mutual agreement was reached between both parties that this sum is forgiven by the player on the condition that he is given the free release and can join any Club without Floriana asking for the parameters fee. Should he have stayed at Floriana till the end of the contract he would have earned an additional €34,000 but the player was not given assurance that he would be paid in full as per his current contract that was dealt with previous administrations.

The player had been in contact with both Birkirkara and Mosta FC but opted to shake hands with Balzan FC President George Borg.

Herrera to wear stripes

As predicted Edward Herrera has put pen on paper to play with Birkirkara this season in a move from Hibs.  The Malta International who signed a five year deal will be an added value to coach Paul Zammit. No financial details are yet out.

    Dik biss izda hadu ghax mhux se jaraw tazza ohra. Bit-tijm li ghandhom se jibqaw jiggieldu biex izommu ma’ l-ewwel sitta. U jekk jibqaw sejrin hekk ghad nergaw narawhom fil-First Division. Ara fhiex waqaw il-Floriana F.C!

    Christian had 2 years left on his contract therefore he would earned the 34,000 in 2 seasons not just 1 season ! Make your math good before you speak mr blogger

    Some maths :

    If Christian Caruana would have earned an additional Eur34,000 if he stayed on for this season, this means he had a monthly income of circa Eur3,000. 

    Wow! No wonder Floriana have these financial difficulties. Does any player these amounts of money? I personally don/’t think so – especially from Floriana who have only to managed to 1 honour in the last 20 years!
