Tarxien sign Italian defender

Tarxien signed Italian defender Marco Botta.

The twenty-one year old moved to Malta eighteen months ago and following a spell with the Sliema Wanderers youths, he turned out for Naxxar Lions last season.

A product of Lazio, Botta played at youth level with Frosinone and Ascoli before moving to Malta.

The Rainbows have so far renewed the contract of goalkeeper Andrea Cassar who has been confirmed as captain and signed Jens Wemmer.
