Sliema Wanderers FC President Jeffrey Farrugia is reportedly resigning from his position following weeks of internal turmoil at the club.
Well informed sources have told Lovin Malta that Farrugia informed the club’s committee that he will be handing in his resignation imminently.
Farrugia will step down amidst an internal crisis within the club following rumours that several players haven’t been paid for up to ten months, leading to a formal complaint filed by players to the Malta Football Association.
Moreover, Farrugia was publicly scrutinised for botching a deal that would have sent young prospect Kurt Shaw to Wolfsberger FC – a move that would have seen the Malta national play against Tottenham Hotspurs in the Europa League in two weeks time.
The botched deal was criticised by many including former Malta national striker Andre Schembri.
Lovin Malta is informed that the vice president, team secretary, team manager and two players have already terminated their contacts with the club.
Lovin Malta reached out to Farrugia for comment but was unable to establish contact.
