BANGOR City have confirmed the departure of technical director Max Leghissa.

The Trieste native arrived at the Eurogold Stadium in May but has now been shown the door by new chairman Dominico Serafino, who is set to appoint a person with more knowledge of the Welsh domestic scene to the role.

This is the latest in a series of notable changes at the club since Serafino’s arrival, which has seen World Cup winner Pedro Pasculli replace Stephen Vaughan Jr as manager and a promise to re-engage with the community after a turbulent two-year spell.

A statement on the club’s Twitter account, read: “Bangor City have tonight parted company with technical director Max Leghissa.

“We would like wish him all the best as he departs the club.”

Leghissa had four years at the Milan academy, in addition to holding the position of marketing director at Udinese.

He has also spent time working at Casarano, Gallipoli, Pordenone and Mezzocorona, and spent two years in Sweden at Syrianska.

Leghissa formed a close relationship with former City chairman and manager Vaughan Jr, with the pair working together at Maltese Premier Division side Mosta.

During his time at the JD Cymru North side, Leghissa was tasked with putting together a squad on non-professional contracts during the summer, with the club under a transfer embargo until the January window as a result of a recent Football Association of Wales hearing.

An announcement regarding the “local” appointment is set to be confirmed in the coming days.

The club recently confirmed to return of stalwart Alun Griffiths as secretary, with the popular figure serving City for a 25-year spell before deciding to remove himself from the fold.
