Not looking for excuses

Tomorrow, Maccabi Tel Aviv is scheduled to take to the field in Bloomfield for the first game against Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League playoffs.
"We know this is not the best preparation," the Greek began, "we have to be ready to fight. I'm not here to find excuses. We have 16-18 players ready to play and I hope we can come up with the strongest team."
Donis found out that his father had been hospitalized for four months after being infected with Corona, and for that he made sure: "I'm scared."
On the pressure on the team due to the situation he said: "It was my decision to do release training only. It was important for the players to relax at home. We prepared the game plan. Everyone is ready to fight for every ball and give everything to achieve a good result."
Donis was joined by Eitan Tibi who said: "We are facing a situation that not everyone gets to be in. We have to do our best to get through this hurdle."
Finally Tibi concluded: "This is a class that does not happen much and one has to concentrate on the goal in order to fulfill the dream. I do not think this or that player will bring victory but together, this is what can bring victory. .
