Efforts have been made over the past days to investigate the true reason why Floriana FC have started their pre-season training at the Hamrun Victor Tedesco synthetic ground. It is believed that Zahra, who is one of the directors of the company Green Investments Ltd, has an issue regarding the management of the synthetic pitch which was installed some years ago adjacent to the main 11 a-side Floriana ground.

This is yet another problem which the new committee led by Johann Said is set to face after the recent resignations of the former President Joe Cauchi and General Secretary Dione Borg from the committee. The real reason why Borg handed his resignation remains undisclosed, but this site is not excluding that it was due to a personal clash between Borg and the new young President Said.

Dione Borg, who handled all the administrative work at Floriana for the past four seasons, was also instrumental in acquiring the necessary funds from the Malta Football Association amounting to EUR90,000With these funds the club invested in new dressing rooms at the Floriana ground. Borg was also instrumental in the making the necessary preparations and proposals for Floriana to be granted new administration premises for their football club.

    Instead of attacking the jounalistic virtues of Sandro, all Floriana supporters should find out why their 11-a -side ground has been a disaster since day one. Someone should be held liable or sent abroad from training.

    Il-ground tal 11 a side l-problema tieghu hija li hemm il hamrija hazina! Barra min hekk il ground wara xi 10 snin jista jaqa tal gvern u allura wiehed irid jara hekk hux vijabli li jigu investiti l-eluf kbar fih…Jekk xi darba jigi tal-Floriana Fc m’ghandix dubju li jinbiddel ghal turf artificjali!
