Bjorn Vas­sallo re­signs as MFA sec­re­tary ... joining FIFA as Euro­pean mem­ber as­so­ci­a­tions’ di­rec­tor

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

The Malta Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion yes­ter­day ac­cepted the res­ig­na­tion of its sec­re­tary gen­eral Bjorn Vas­sallo dur­ing the Bu­reau meet­ing in the morn­ing.

The out­go­ing sec­re­tary gen­eral re­signed be­cause he has ac­cepted an of­fer from the world foot­ball gov­ern­ing body, FIFA, where he will be the Di­rec­tor of Euro­pean mem­ber as­so­ci­a­tions.

Vas­sallo started work­ing with the MFA in 2010, first in the role of Ex­ec­u­tive Head and then as sec­re­tary gen­eral.

In a short state­ment, the MFA said Vas­sallo formed an in­te­gral part of the re­forms taken by the as­so­ci­a­tion in re­cent years, His con­tri­bu­tion led to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the needs through which Mal­tese foot­ball has con­tin­ued to evolve, thanks also to all those who work in this sec­tor.

The state­ment added that it was an hon­our for the as­so­ci­a­tion and for Mal­tese foot­ball to have its for­mer sec­re­tary gen­eral work­ing on tougher chal­lenges within the world body of foot­ball.

It au­gured suc­cess for Vas­sallo in his new post and went on to thank him for the work he did for Mal­tese foot­ball, first as a club mem­ber and later in the as­so­ci­a­tion’s ad­min­is­tra­tion.
