Giovanni Tedesco is new Hamrun Spartans coach

Giovanni Tedesco is the new coach of Hamrun Spartans. He replaces Jacques Scerri who led the club for the past eighteen months.

This will be Tedesco’s third club in Malta after leading Floriana between April 2014 and June 2015, a short spell with Birkirkara between June and December 2015 and once again Floriana between June 2016 and December 2017.

Giovanni Tedesco started his playing career with Reggina and then played for Fiorentina, Foggia, Salernitana, Perugia, Genoa and Palermo. He started coaching the Allievi side of Palermo and then led Foligno in the Lega Pro Seconda Divisione before moving to Malta to join Floriana. After being sacked by Birkirkara, in January 2015, Tedesco was announced as new head coach of his hometown club Palermo as the club was searching for a trainer with the requested UEFA Pro coaching badges since Guillermo Barros Schelotto did not hold a coaching licence. However following Schelotto’s resignation as he was denied a valid authorisation to coach the team, Palermo promoted Primavera youth coach Giovanni Bosi as new head coach with Tedesco as his technical collaborator.
