How did you begin playing futsal?
I began to play this fantastic game about 3 seasons ago. I was contacted by Karl Micallef who had already seen me playing 11-a-side football with Valletta and Luqa St Andrews.
What are the things you like most in this sport?
The thing that really fascinates me is the tempo of the game. It is very quick, you have to possess a lot of skills and quick thinking. You have to act immediately or else you’ll find a player ready to take the ball. Eventually these skills help you a lot in 11-a-side football.
And what about something strange that you find in futsal?
Well something strange or maybe different from 11-a-side football is the distance. I normally play as a winger in football and I use some speed to run on the right flank. In futsal,everything is different, the distance is shorter therefore you have to cross the pitch from one side to another.
Talk about the teams you have played so far.
In futsal I have been playing with Luqa St Andrews for the past three years. As regards football, I have played with Marsa, Valletta, Dingli and Luqa St Andrews.
How are you feeling with Luqa St Andrews?
I can say that playing with Luqa St Andrews was a good choice indeed. I think that this current season we are improving even more in our level of play. There is unity and harmony in the squad and this helps us to play better.
Without any doubt the goal that you scored against Melita is the highlight of your career…
Yes, I can still remember that goal! It’s difficult to forget it. We were 4-0 down and we succeeded to make an incredible comeback. And finally that goal that gave us the precious three points scored 1.1 seconds from the end. Incredible but true!
What are your objectives for the current season?
Our objectives for this season is to retain our status in the Premier Division. Personally I would like to improve my futsal level and help my team to win more matches.
