Giovanni Tedesco appointed new Sirens FC coach

Sirens FC announced that they have appointed Giovanni Tedesco as their new coach. Tedesco replaces Steve D’Amato a few hours after the club had announced that they parted ways with him.

Giovanni Tedesco is no new face to Maltese football after coaching Birkirkara, Floriana, Hamrun Spartans, Gzira United and Valletta.

Giovanni Tedesco had served as coach of Floriana between April 2014 and June 2015, followed by a short spell with Birkirkara between June and December 2015. He returned to Malta to join Floriana in June 2016, staying until December 2017. Tedesco joined Hamrun Spartans in summer 2018 but then moved to Gzira United in May 2019. After stepping down in January 2020, he moved to Valletta.

He was due to sign a new deal with Valletta in summer but then opted against, moving to the United Arab Emirates and joining Al Bataeh Club. However, his stay lasted only a few weeks.

The Palermo-born coach had started his coaching career at Palermo at youth level and had coached Foligno before moving to Malta. After leaving Birkirkara, he had a short spell as coach of Palermo in the Serie A mid-way through season 2015/16.
