Floriana coach Enzo Potenza has officially resigned from his post at the club.
Potenza had denied earlier reports that he has handed in his resignation as Floriana FC coach, insisting that there is an agreement between the two parties to use the winter break as a period of reflection after a shaky start to the season.
Contacted by the Times of Malta, Potenza had said that after considering the team’s situation, they will take “a break to reflect”.
However, just hours later, it appears that the club has made its decision and has accepted Potenza’s resignation and will be now looking towards finding his replacement.
Fears surrounding his now confirmed resignation were present just a few months after former president Riccardo Gauci indeed left his post due to the continued stalling in the process for Floriana’s Commercialisation of Sports Facilities project as well the team’s elimination in the UEFA Europa League.
The former Senglea Athletic coach joined Floriana in 2019 and has made a significant impact to the side.
However, since the start of the new season, they have struggled and now face an uphill battle in the new year, to climb up from tenth place in the standings after having gathered only 16 points and stand 12 points below leaders Hamrun Spartans.
