Former Maltese Premier League winner Romeu Romão joined Qormi FC during the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old left Mosta after spending seven months with the club following his initial transfer from Valletta during the summer.

Speaking about his move to Qormi the Brazilian right-back said: “Since I have arrived here we have played five games and won three, keeping three clean sheets.

“The two defeats came against big teams, the group has quality, the coach is very good and professional and he is close to the players.

“The president is very good and helps us off the pitch, I feel that I have helped the team on and off the field. We will fight to the end to keep the club in the Premier League.”

Qormi beat St Andrews 2-0 last week and will face Tarxien Rainbows tomorrow night in the Maltese Premier League.

Romão continued by speaking about tomorrow night’s clash as Qormi look to move away from the relegation zone.

“When two teams are under pressure, the game is always interesting to see who will dominate more and who will deserve the points,” said the Brazilian.

“I’m sure it will be a contested and tough game, Tarxien have a qualified team with experienced players, we will go into the game with the heart to try to leave with the three points on offer.”

The 28-year-old went on to discuss how he is still involved with his former club Mosta acting as a youth team coach: “I feel like I am still involved with the Mosta setup, since I still remain at the club as the coach of the U13 team.

“I have a great relationship with the members of the committee, and all the players who are there.”

Romão continued by speaking about his decision to leave the club he had previously captained during the January transfer window.

“In football, it is normal for these things to happen, you give your best every day, one day you give 99% and fail then you lose your value,” explained the defender.

“One day I was the captain of the team and then I was suddenly outside the list of 18 players so for me it was time to move on and get a transfer.”

With 13 points to their name, Qormi FC go into tomorrow night’s game in better form than 10th place Tarxien who have not won in their previous five games.

The former Maltese Premier League winner finished by speaking about Qormi’s goal going into the closing stage of the season.

“We are training very hard to achieve our goal,” said the 28-year-old.

“It will be difficult as Qormi did not get many points in the first round of the season, however, confidence will increase with each game as we get points.

“The next game against Tarxien will be the most deciding game for us to achieve the goal we have set out for.”
