On Thursday evening, Malta’s very own Melita F.C. took on Serie B side Palermo in an intense pre-season friendly, but a truly interesting takeaway from the match-up is the fact that the Maltese-side was coached by father-son duo Clive & Matthew Mizzi.
In an important occasion for Melita F.C., the local side headed to Stadio Renzo Barbera in Palermo for an international friendly against the Rosaneri.
Calling the opportunity “a dream came true”, coach Clive Mizzi shared a photo of himself alongside son Matthew Mizzi as they watched along Melita’s performance, paired with an old photo, presumably from years ago when Matthew started his footballing journey.
The game ultimately came to a close with a score of 5-1 in favour of Palermo, with the friendly serving as a great opportunity of exposure for the coaches and the team.
