Coach Giovanni Tedesco is back in Malta after he was forced to part ways with UAE club Ras Al Khaimah after their sporting project floundered due to financial problems.
The former Birkirkara and Gżira United coach headed to the Middle East this summer to join the newly-formed Dubai-based club where he was expected to be at the helm of this new project.
Tedesco took a number of players who had a connection with the Maltese Premier League in the Middle East. These included Rowen Muscat, Jean Paul Farrugia, Mathias Muchardi, Maurizio Vella and Marco Criaco among others.
The Italian coach spent the first month leading his newly-formed squad in their pre-season preparations. However, just a few days before the start of the season the club annulled their registration to the country’s league competitions due to financial problems.
This turned out to be a huge blow for Tedesco and the rest of the players he took him to the Middle East who found themselves without a club despite being promised a future in the Middle East.
Tedesco is now back in Malta and is looking for a new project to restart his coaching career.
Apart from his stints with Birkirkara and Gżira United, Tedesco had also been at the helm of Valletta FC, Floriana and Ħamrun Spartans.
