During this week of preparation for the game against Gzira United, FFC Media caught up with Clyde Borg and asked him the following questions.
You are the longest serving player of the current Floriana F.C squad, a Floriana Nursery product, a club man and a role model. What does this mean to you personally?
“It gives me great honour to have been at the club for such a long time. I am currently the second player with the most appearances in the history of the club, and it comes with great pride to be in such a position considering all the esteemed players who played for Floriana throughout the years“.
Maybe no-one expected such a positive start with seven points from three very difficult fixtures. In the derby last weekend, the Floriana supporters turned up in great numbers. Does this give all the players an extra motivation to do well?
“Playing in front of a crowded stand is always pleasing. It gives the team an extra push and motivation especially in difficult moments of the match“.
Is the current Floriana F.C squad one of the most complete and competitive squads in recent seasons?
“Definitely. The squad possesses great players and above all shares important attributes which can drive us forward to reach our objectives.“
The league seems to be extremely balanced so far. Realistically, can Floriana F.C challenge for the very top positions this season?
“All teams are proving to be worthy competitors and there will be no easy matches for us. Finishing in a top spot is possible if we are consistent and show character and commitment throughout the whole season“.
Finally a message to all the Floriana F.C supporters with yet another important league match against Gzira United this weekend.
