Oliver Spiteri, Sta Lucia reach mutual agreement to go separate ways

Oliver Spiteri has announced that he has stepped down as coach of Sta Lucia FC.

The Sta Lucia coach held talks with club president Robert Micallef on Thursday and they decided to go separate ways in mutual agreement.

The experienced coach announced his decision on his facebook account and his departure comes just one day after Sta Lucia suffered a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Gudja United at the Centenary Stadium.

“After 3 years with Santa Lucia FC today marks the end of my journey. I would like to thank all the players that formed part of the team as well as the committee,” Spiteri wrote on his facebook account.

“Last but not least all the supporters of Santa Lucia FC.”

On his part, president Robert Micallef said that Spiteri’s departure was a difficult decision for the club.

“It was a difficult decision for the club as for us Oliver Spiteri is more than just a coach,” Micallef told the Times of Malta.

“However, the club felt that something had to be done and we decided to make this change. I thank Oliver Spiteri for his contribution and wish him all the best for the future.”

aSpiteri has been at the helm of the club for the past three years and has helped the club to establish themselves in the Premier League.

Last season, the Saints enjoyed their best season in the Premier League when they finished eighth in the Maltese top-flight.

However, this season the Saints have struggled for results and are currently second from bottom, on 11 points, level with Mosta.
