Jose Borg named new Birkirkara FC head coach

To remain at the helm of women’s team

Jose Borg is set for double role at Birkirkara FC for the remainder of this season after the Premier  League club announced that the women’s team coach will also take charge of the men’s selection.

The club said in a statement that they took this decision as Chetcuti could not remain in charge as head coach as the UEFA Men Licensing process do not permit him to stay beyond 60 days, a term that now has expired.

Borg has been at the helm of the Birkirkara women’s team for the past 18 months and last season he helped the club to win the league title as well as the Super Cup.

However, Borg will now be given the responsibility to guide the men’s team who are desperate to revive their fortunes and mount a strong challenge for European football this summer.

“As part of the club’s ongoing UEFA Men Licensing process, a crucial requirement is a UEFA ‘PRO’ Licensed Head Coach. The interim tenure of Mr. Brian Chetcuti, fulfilling this role for the maximum allowed sixty days, has now concluded,” the club said in a statement.

“After careful consideration, the club has decided to internally promote Mr. Jose Borg to the position of Head Coach until the end of the season.

“Importantly, Mr. Borg’s current responsibilities with the club’s women’s team will remain unchanged, and the club is committed to supporting the Women’s Team in achieving its season’s objectives.

“We express our gratitude to Mr. Brian Chetcuti for his dedicated work over the past two months, and we have full confidence that he will continue to make valuable contributions in his role as an assistant coach.”

Birkirkara will be in action on Tuesday when they face Sirens in the Izibet FA Trophy and then face Valletta in the Premier League on Friday.
