Father And Son Coaches Malta’s Football Game Vs Palermo

A kickabout through generations!


Thursday evening witnessed an engaging pre-season friendly between Malta’s own Melita F.C. and Serie B contender Palermo. However, the most intriguing aspect of this match wasn’t just the game itself but the coaching dynamic at play. Notably, the Maltese team was under the joint guidance of a father-son duo, Clive and Matthew Mizzi.

Marking a significant moment for Melita F.C., the local squad journeyed to Palermo’s Stadio Renzo Barbera for an international friendly clash against the Rosaneri.

Describing this occasion as “the realization of a dream,” Coach Clive Mizzi captured a moment in a photo where he stood side by side with his son, Matthew Mizzi. The image was juxtaposed with an older photograph, likely from the early stages of Matthew’s football journey.

When the final whistle blew, Palermo emerged victorious with a score of 5-1. Despite the outcome, the friendly match provided valuable exposure for both the coaching duo and the team, contributing to their growth and experience.
