New futsal club Lija Athletics have appointed Nicola del Re as their new coach for next season.
This is Del Re’s first experience as a coach. He began his futsal career six years ago as a player with Tal-Werqa Futsal Club. He also played with Pentagon Futsal, Naxxar Motors Futsal, ZC Excess Lazio and Qormi Futsal. He currently plays with Maltese champions Balzan FC.
Del Re always dreamed of managing a futsal team. Some coaches approached him to learn more about certain tactics and management skills.
When Balzan appointed Gabriel Dobre as their player/coach at the beginning of the season, Del Re was given a lot of mentoring by the Romanian international and this gave him a lot of experience.
As a player he won two championships, two KO competitions and two Super Cups mostly with Balzan.
Nicola del Re has already met some potential players that could form part of the Lija squad.
His main objectives are to have a good squad and challenge for promotion to an upper division.
Moreover he would like to improve his players’ futsal skills.
Lija Athletics officially applied to be one of the new futsal clubs for the coming season.
