Birkirkara FC to keep faith with Brian Chetcuti as interim coach when Premier League restarts

Brian Chetcuti is set to stay at the helm of Birkirkara FC when the championship restarts on January 6, top club officials confirmed to the Times of Malta.

The Stripes saw their first-team coach Giovanni Tedesco step down from the post of first-team coach this month after a string of disappointing results that saw the team slip down in the Premier League standings.

At this point, the Birkirkara top hierarchy decided to put Brian Chetcuti as interim coach until the end of the year.

At the time of Tedesco’s departure, Birkirkara president Michael Valenzia had said that the club were analysing several candidates for the job but were in no hurry to make an appointment as they wanted to bring in the perfect person in charge.

But it looks like Birkirkara FC are satisfied with the work carried out by Chetcuti and have decided to continue with him in charge.

During his time in charge, Chetcuti has managed to somewhat steady the ship in the championship as the team managed to secure an impressive 3-0 victory over Malta champions Ħamrun Spartans, were held to a 1-1 draw by Gudja United and secured a 3-2 win over Gżira United.

Their biggest disappointment was a 4-0 defeat to Ħamrun Spartans in the Super Cup final on December 8.

Birkirkara are currently sixth in the Premier League standings on 17 points, level with Hibernians.

The Stripes resume their league commitments on Sunday, January 7 when they face Sirens at the National Stadium.
