Winston Muscat is the prime favourite to be confirmed as the new coach of Marsaxlokk FC, the Times of Malta can confirm.
The southseasiders are in search of a new head coach after last week they ended their relationship with Argentine Pablo Doffo, despite the latter enjoying a very positive campaign on their return to the Maltese top flight.
In fact, last season Marsaxlokk not only managed to secure their status in the top flight for another season but aslo managed an impressive run in the FA Trophy which saw them reach the final of the Cup competition, only to lose to Birkirkara 2-0.
Sources have told the Times of Malta, that Marsaxlokk were looking for a new man in charge of their first team and identified Muscat as their ideal candidate.
Muscat left Sirens at the end of the season after two years in charge, during which he helped the St Paul’s Bay side to retain their top-flight status.
Negotiations between Marsaxlokk FC and Muscat have progressed well in the past few days and it is understood that a few details need to be ironed out before the Premier League club makes a formal announcement.
Should negotiations be successfully concluded, Muscat would be making a return to the southerners after he was at the helm of the club for a short stint during the 2011/12 season.
In his career, Muscat has been at the helm of four other clubs in the Premier League namely Tarxien Rainbows, Pembroke Athleta, Naxxar Lions and Vittoriosa Stars.
