The cancidate for MFA Vice-President Peter Busuttil issued a statement following the election which was held during the association’s Annual General Meeting on Saturday.
“For me this was my first “attack” into football administration; it was a solo run and with no one to pass the ball to, and I lost. Back to the drawing board and notwithstanding, I pledge my support to Maltese football in particular.”
“Whilst wholeheartedly congratulating the winners, especially Norman and his team, I must stress that I am utterly disappointed that Carmelo Bartolo was not re-elected. At the same time I congratulate Chris Bonnett on his defining victory and urge in particular Donald Spiteri to thrive on and not give up: his place is in football. We have lost a game, there will be more to play.”
“I always knew this would be an uphill struggle… I always knew that this was the first offensive play… there are 2 halves, 2 legs, more to play for… in time.”
“I would like to thank the media for their support and that I will take on what we discussed and push forward for our association, our clubs and our football… together.”
