Darren Abdilla confirmed as Gzira United coach

Gzira United have confirmed Darren Abdilla as their coach after agreeing another two-year deal.

Darren Abdilla had joined Gzira United in Division 1 mid-way through season 2014/15, leading the club to third place and the Play-Off spot. The following season, he led the Maroons to promotion to the Premier League after an absence of thirty-four years and the following summer, he signed a new deal as part of the club’s technical staff although he was no longer the head coach. However he was re-appointed as coach a few months later. In summer 2019, he joined Valletta but was sacked in February when Valletta were ironically sharing the top spot in the table with Floriana. Abdilla re-joined Gzira in summer 2020.

Earlier in his career, he served as coach with St. George’s, Birzebbuga St. Peter’s and assistant coach with Floriana, Hibernians and Valletta, amongst other teams.
