Manolito Micallef: I have a big respect for Floriana Fans but…

Mano and Johan Said celebrating happier moments at Floriana

In an interview with Joshua Cacciattolo, Mosta’s  new boy Manolito Micallef has finally broken the silence on his transfer to the Charles Abela Stadium and shares his reasons for choosing the Blues.

The Blues outfit are spending a reported €50,000 fee for the defender, of which €10,000 went in arrears to Hamrun Spartans.

Micallef, who was also linked with Hamrun Spartans, says that he was convinced that he will go to Mosta after meeting the club committee: ”I want to thank Mosta president George Galea, Jeffrey Farrugia ‘Vinc’, Leli Buhagiar and Paul Vella for their work. They made the impossible deal a reality and worked night and day to reach an agreement with the Greens” he added.

Manolito Micallef has no doubt that he has taken a step forward in his career. “This is another step in my career, another dream that has come true. This has been a massive thing in the media, and Mosta’s is a very interesting project, a project I wanted to be a part of. I want to make history with this club and have come here to win, not for anything else. I consider Mosta to be at the same level as the other clubs I have played for. With the likes of Justin Haber and the possibility of Daniel Bogdanovic, we have the future as well’’

Manolito joins Mosta after two successful seasons at Floriana in which he lifted the Maltese F.A. Trophy, and the 28-year-old thanked the Greens for allowing him to kick-start his career following a spell at Hamrun Spartans. “I would like to thank my father Genio, who always back me in my decisions, Johann Said the only person shown faith in me to bring me back at Floriana. I had a massive two years with them but from day one there were individuals outside the club who never want me back. I only had problems with some people outside the current committee, but after the latest episodes because of certain people I asked the current committee members to leave. Some people never want me back in the Green shirt’’.

Before he left for another training session, He added ‘‘I got on great with my former team mates and I want to take this opportunity to say that I had a great relationship with both the club and the fans, who was also my inspiration. The only thing I have to say about Floriana fans is that I was happy there, they put a smile on my face again”.

Manolito, who also had spell at Lija Athletics early in his career, has become the fourth summer signing for the Premier League side, following the transfers of Steve Bezzina, Daniel Mitev and Justin Haber.

Note: I would like to apologise to Floriana supporters for some misunderstandings in a recent post regarding Manolito move to Mosta
