Wara li l-bieraħ dan is-sit svela b’mod esklussiv li Christoph Stolp se jkun il-coach ta’ Floriana Royce, illum ic-Champions lokali ħarġu stqarrija uffiċjali biex jikkonfermaw din l-aħbar. Din hi l-istqarrija Furjaniża:

The Floriana Basketball Club in collaboration with Move Orange have appointed Christoph Stolp as the new Men’s Head Coach until the end of the 2013/2014 season.

Christoph enjoys a growing reputation having guided Luxol’s female senior team to dominate the category during the past two seasons.

The Floriana Basketball Club Committee would like to welcome Coach Christoph to the Club and wish him the best of luck and all the success that the Club enjoyed during the past few seasons.

Floriana ħarġu wkoll stqarrija sabiex isservi ta’ kjarifika wara diversi kummenti li nkitbu hekk kif tħabbret it-tneħħija ta’ Paul Ferrante. Għal darb’oħra qiegħdin nippublikaw din l-istqarrija kelma b’kelma:

The Floriana Basketball Club committee would like to clarify a number of incorrect conclusions that have been reached after the termination of the coaching agreement with Mr. Paul Ferrante.

• The decision to change the senior team head coach was taken unanimously by the club committee, a decision that was discussed at committee level over a number of weeks also following a divergence on vision and operations;

• A top club official (PRO and Team Manager) met Mr. Paul Ferrante in person to communicate this decision face to face. It was a committee judgment to send one individual to communicate a difficult decision rather than being faced with the whole management board. This was done solely out of respect;

• The reasons for this decision were communicated to Mr. Paul Ferrante in person and the committee believes that they should not be divulged to the general public;

• As communicated earlier, the club has full respect for Mr. Paul Ferrante and his achievements with the club recognizing his critical role in taking Floriana from second division to the championship. It is also important to realize that behind the championship win there was also a committee that provided a setup and a team costing tens of thousands of Euro, this being achieved with hard work, personal sacrifices and personal funding;

• The Floriana Basketball Club committee is made up of a group of individuals that work hard, investing many hours and personal money into the club. It is the sole prerogative of the committee to take decisions based on the best interest of the club;

Whilst appreciating the contribution that Mr. Paul Ferrante has given to the Club in the past years, we understand his sentiments, and trust that with respect and dignity we can move forward from here. Out of respect to all parties involved the committee will not comment further on this issue.


  1. Good Luck coach Stolp.

    You will be better coaching Floriana

    Huwa ghajb li jkun hemm min jipprova jgiddeb kumitat li jimxi b’serjeta.  Awguri Floriana.  Pawlu Ferrante kien kowc tajjeb, izda mhuiex l-uniku kowc f’Malta u mhuiex l-ewwel u l-ahhar kowc li inbidel.  Good luck Mr Stolp, you have a good team, now make it work!
