Floriana FC would like to announce that John Buttigieg has been appointed as new Floriana FC Coach.
Certainly, there’s no need for introduction as John Buttigieg donned the Green and White shirt for 213 club appearances during the golden 1990’s era, winning all the local major honours (1 Maltese Premier League, 2 F.A Trophies & 1 Super Cup) during his playing days at Floriana FC.
As a Coach, John Buttigieg started his career with Birkirkara F.C in the 2007-08 season winning the F.A Trophy in his first season with the Stripes. In 2009, the former Floriana FC captain was appointed as Maltese National Coach as he occupied the prestigious post until October 2011. Most recently, John Buttigieg had other spells as a coach of Sliema Wanderers F.C (June 2016 – January 2019) and Birkirkara F.C (April 2019 – September 2019).
In his first comments after putting pen to paper with the club, John Buttigieg stated that it is a great privilege for him to coach this club and expressed full faith in moving the club forward in the right direction and with the undisputed qualities of the current team, there is reason to be optimistic for this new challenge.
On behalf of Floriana FC we would like to give a warm welcome back to John Buttigieg at our club and we wish him the best of luck for his career as a Coach of the Greens.
Welcome Back Coach!
