Following the controversy surrounding a possible offer by Hibernians FC to former Welsh international striker Ched Evans, the club issued a statement in which it stated that it has no intention of signing the player.
The statement, signed by president Tony Bezzina, explains that one of the Club’s Sponsors, namely VaughanBoxing.TV, approached Hibernians Football Club’s Team Manager Mr. Jeffrey Farrugia to determine whether Hibernians Football Club could be interested in engaging Mr. Ched Evans, if such possibility arose.
However the club stressed that it had no intention of engaging Mr Ched Evans.
“Under my Presidency for the past 36 years, our Club has always greatly valued the social aspect and impact on every decision taken, being the engagement of football players and the daily running of the club. The members and supporters of Hibernians Football Club and the general public can be assured that consideration of the social aspect and impact on decisions are of the highest values and shall always continue to be paramount and of utmost priority to our Club. No decisions taken by our Club shall be subjected to financial considerations or to the achievement of honours,” concludes Bezzina.
