In a short state­ment, he said he had met club pres­i­dent Shar­lon Pace and both de­cided mu­tu­ally that he should stop with im­me­di­ate ef­fect in the in­ter­est of the club.

He went on to say that he was hop­ing that his res­ig­na­tion would cre­ate a new spark within the team and the club.

He thanked the play­ers and his col­lab­o­ra­tors as well as the club pres­i­dent and the peo­ple around him for their ded­i­cated work and en­thu­si­asm.

The United have been on a very dis­ap­point­ing run of six matches from which they only col­lected one point.

They thanked him for his ser­vices to the club and au­gured suc­cess in his fu­ture com­mit­ments in the lo­cal foot­ball scene.

The club has not named any suc­ces­sor yet, but in all prob­a­bil­ity, Ni­se­vic’s as­sis­tant Dar­ren Ab­dilla will be handed over the job.

It was un­der Ab­dilla’s lead­er­ship that Gzira had won the first divi­sion ti­tle and pro­mo­tion from to the Premier League (after 35 years).
