Malta FA accepts resignation of Devis Mangia

The Executive Board of the Malta FA has resolved to accept the resignation tendered by Mr Devis Mangia, who informed the Association that he would be relinquishing his post as National Teams Head Coach with immediate effect. In his letter of resignation Mr Mangia said that his decision was taken in the best interest of the national team to serenely face the football challenges which lie ahead.

Mr Mangia accepted to continue to cooperate in the process being conducted by the Association’s organs in relation to the safeguarding aspect of the allegations levelled against him, which revolved around alleged inappropriate conversation.

Meanwhile, the Executive Board was informed that a report has already been presented by the Safeguarding Officer following a month-long investigation which saw him interview a number of interested or informed parties. The report will now be assessed by the Association’s Safeguarding Board, composed of independent professionals.
