Silvio Vella is no longer the coach of Hibernians as the former Malta champions announced in a statement that had reached an amicable agreement to part ways with their former defender with immediate effect.
It’s a bit of an unexpected development as Vella had only taken over the team midway through last season following the departure of Andrea Pisanu.
The Paolites endured a very disappointing season which saw them miss out on European football after they were beaten by Balzan in a play-off for fourth place.
Early indications had shown that Vella could still be in charge of the team this season, but the Paolites have now taken a decision to bring in a new first-team coach.
“Hibernians FC would like to announce that an amicable agreement has been reached with coach Silvio Vella for the termination of his contract with the club, by mutual consent.
Both parties have made the decision after careful consideration and came to this conclusion based on mutual respect,” the Premier League club said in a statement.
“The club wishes to thank Silvio for his loyalty and dedication shown towards the club, whilst wishing him the best of luck for the future.”
No name has been mentioned by the Premier League club on who will replace Vella at Hibernians, but it is understood that an announcement on a new appointment will be made in the coming days.
