Floriana FC have completed the signing of Argentine defender Emiliano Callegari, the Premier League club announced.
The Greens have been working heavily in the past few days to strengthen their squad and they have now completed a transfer for Callegari.
“Argentinian central defender Emiliano Callegari has joined Floriana FC in a move which adds further depth to the new reliable rearguard of our Senior Squad,” the Premier League club said in a statement.
“The quality of the strong 25-year-old defender needs no introduction to local football following his positive experience with Sirens FC last season under head coaches Steve D’Amato and Giovanni Tedesco.
“Callegari played most of his career with Club Atlético San Telmo in the Argentinian Primera B Metropolitana and eventually joined a number of Italian clubs, most recently SSD Insieme Formia.”
The arrival of Callegari might signal the end for another Argentine defender on the club’s books, Enzo Ruiz.
In fact, Ruiz has been linked with a move to Birkirkara FC and when it looked like the transfer was set to be finalised, it emerged that there are still some issues that have not been cleared.
Sources told the Times of Malta that Floriana are now set to start to listen to offers from other Premier League clubs for the veteran defender who seems that he has no future with the Greens.
