Steve Abela denies allegations

Former Sliema Wanderers president Steve Abela denied allegations regarding the club’s financial situation after quitting the club which were made during a programme on TVM on Sunday.

Abela stated that in the three years as Sliema Wanderers President, with the help of his fellow committee members and sponsors, Sliema Wanderers had applied and obtained the UEFA licence necessary to participate in all UEFA competitions.

He said that meant that all financial requirements were met by Sliema. In addition, all players wages relative to the three years of his presidency were paid, again thanks to the committee members and sponsors.

Abela concluded the statement by saying that the declarations made by the particular journalist were only meant to discredit him and Sliema Wanderers.
