Branko Nisevic resigns as Gzira Utd. coach
Branko Nisevic has resigned from his post as Gzira United coach, it was revealed yesterday.
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.
In another separate statement, the Gzira United committee said it had accepted Nisevic’s resignation.
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).
