A football management company owned by Angela Perez, the niece of Real Madrid President Florentino Perez, has taken over the technical management of Maltese first division club Gudja United.

Solo Football, as the company is called, also intends to acquire the club once it is turned into a company.

Gudja were promoted from the second division earlier this year. Its target is now to get to the Premier Division.

Ms Perez's husband, Tommaso Volpi will be coming to Malta on Thursday to meet club officials.

The initial deal covers the forthcoming season and will involve two foreign players being brought to Malta, as well as coaching staff.
