Birkirkara secured the services of Brazilian midfielder Marcelina Emerson from Floriana. The twenty-four year old is the second Floriana player to join the Stripes after Vito Plut apart from coach Giovanni Tedesco.
Marcelina was on the books of Hellas Verona in Italy before moving to FC Viitorul Constanța in Romania. He joined Floriana last summer and established himself as one of the key players for the Greens.
This is the fourth signing for Birkirkara who had earlier signed Fabrizio Miccoli and Edin Murga apart from Plut. The club is also close to sealing the signing of young goalkeeper Philip Schranz from Melita.
