Justin Haber said that he is set to part ways with Gżira United as he is no longer part of the first-team plans of coach Darren Abdilla.
Speaking to the Times of Malta, the veteran goalkeeper said that he never had the intention to part ways with the Maroons but the club’s decision to bring another goalkeeper was a clear sign that he was no longer part of the club’s plans.
“I want to make it clear that I never expressed my desire to leave Gżira United but the club’s decision to bring a foreign goalkeeper that hasn’t played for the previous four months was a clear sign that I did not form part of the club’s plans,” the 40-year-old said.
“It would have been easier for me to stay here to just pocket my wage without playing but that is not part of my nature. I am looking for a club that can offer me a good challenge and I hope to move on during the January transfer window.
“I still feel that I am a valid goalkeeper and continue to train hard as I know that I can still give a good contribution to any team that is interested in my services.”
In the past few weeks, there has been talk that Haber has been attracting interest from Birkirkara and Floriana but so far nothing concrete happened.
“A few weeks ago there was talk that I could return to Floriana but after initial talks, nothing developed and the move collapsed,” Haber said.
“I had a few inquiries from a couple of clubs but it’s still at a premature stage but hopefully something will develop in the coming weeks as I am raring to continue playing at a high level.
“It’s unfortunate that I have to leave Gżira United as they have always supported me through difficult times and I will always be grateful to the club and president Sharlon Pace.”
