Farrugia has no regrets

Pietà Hotspurs FC coach Ray Farrugia has stepped down to concentrate on youth development.
Pietà Hotspurs FC coach Ray 'Zazu' Farrugia has stepped down with immediate effect to concentrate on youth development work.

Development plan
"I will now dedicate all my attention to the development of young footballers on the island," the 48-year-old told uefa.com. "Originally I was due to start this youth development football plan two years ago, but then I was put in charge of Pietà.

'Really satisfied'
"I do not regret one single moment of my wonderful Premier Division experience with my club, though. I feel really satisfied with the way things worked out during the past two seasons." Farrugia will now work at the Carmel Busuttil Soccer School. "I am relishing the thought of this new challenge at the youth academy," the former Malta Under-21 coach added.
