Coach Jesmond Zammit and Gudja United decide to go separate ways

Gudja United and coach Jesmond Zammit have reached an agreement to go separate ways, the Premier League club announced.

Zammit returned on the bench of Gudja United at the start of the season, but the club struggled for results during the first part of the season.

In fact, Gudja United are the only Premier League side in the top flight still without a win after the opening 11 matches as they managed six draws and five defeats that left them 12th in the Premier League standings, level on points with Sirens.

Last week, the southerners slumped to a disappointing 2-1 defeat to relegation rivals and that result turned out to be the final straw for the former Valletta and Ħamrun Spartans coach.

It is understood that Zammit met with the top hierarchy of Gudja United this week and an agreement was reached that it would be better if the two parties go separate ways.

“The committee of Gudja United FC and coach Jesmond Zammit have reached an agreement to end their contractual relationship,” the Premier League club said in a statement.

“The club would like to thank Jesmond Zammit for all his work during the past few months.

“The club is now looking forward to the second part of the season.”

The Premier League club will now start their search for a new head coach and given the team’s poor situation in the standings, it is likely that the club will try and effect a few changes in their first-team squad during the January transfer window in their bid to retain their Premier League status.

Earlier this month, the club had announced the appointment of Luca Scuderi who will fill the role of technical consultant who will oversee the club’s transfer dealing.

The Italian official is not a new face to Maltese season as two years ago he filled the same role with Premier League rivals Sliema Wanderers.
