Thane Micallef named Motors Inc. Coach of the Month for January

Gudja United’s Thane Micallef was named Motors Inc. Coach of the Month for January. 

In January, Gudja United grabbed the bull by its horns, and changed their status from  relegation strugglers to a comfortable mid-table position side. This has to be attributed to the on-field players but also to their mentor Thane Micallef who succeeded in engineering his side to their first ever three consecutive win run since Gudja United got promoted to the Premier Division back in 2019. 

Their three wins on the bounce over Santa Lucia 3-0, Sliema Wanderers 1-0 and  Valletta 3-1 with coach Micallef at the helm was a truly remarkable feat.
