Updated: Zejtun Corinthians part ways with coach

Tuesday, March 23, 2010, 13:29

Zejtun Corinthians FC who are currently joint leaders with Naxxar Lions in their respective section in Division 3 have parted ways with their coach Edward Darmanin.

This decision, which is believed to have been taken by the Club’s President, entrepreneur John Bugeja, has taken all by surprise due to the fact that despite their 3-3 draw against Naxxar last Sunday, Zejtun remain unbeaten this season.

Sources close to the Zejtun club told this website that the committee backed the decision taken by the President in view of the recent lack of team spirit inside the Corinthians’ dressing room.

Darmanin who last season was engaged with Fgura Utd, and is a very respected local football coach was communicated the news on Monday morning.

It is still unknown whether Malta Football Coaches Association will condemn this decision taken by the Club to defend one of it’s members who has been unfairly dismissed from his coaching duties.

Darmanin who had a formal contract deposited at the MFA at the beginning of the season can opt for a friendly settlement with the Club or seek for full financial payment as per contract till the end of the season by writing to the MFA’s Players and Coaches complaints Board.

Update: The players met today at 18:00hrs with the club committee and president and it was announced that Alan Mifsud is going to act as a player coach till the end of the current season.

    Then , can Zejtun Corinthians give us there reasons as we cannot see any other reasons around .
    Maybe the fact that they drew a game that was already lost with Naxxar ??
