One of the things that Maccabi Tel Aviv gained last night (Tuesday) during the 2: 1 loss to Salzburg in the Champions Playoffs was Tal Ben Haim.

So far Ben Haim has not really come from the Czech Republic to Maccabi Tel Aviv and the truth is that he did not get too many opportunities from Georgios Donis.

Also yesterday, with all the missing staff, the winger only came off the bench.

But in his minutes on the field, Ben Haim breathed new life into a team that was in the down after Salzburg took the lead and made a comeback.

Ben Haim pushed and did good deeds and was also the one who was sent to talk to the media and first talked about the penalty that Maccabi Tel Aviv received for its duty.

"It's easiest to say that mistakes are part of the game, but for that they brought the VAR," he said in disappointment.

"I think there was room to cancel that penalty but unfortunately the referee thought otherwise and did not even go to the screen to check himself. There was no penalty and that is unequivocal."



disappointing.



"It's disappointing but we can be proud of ourselves. We are after the most sub-optimal preparation that can be for such an important game. We can come out cheering even though the result is not good."

Would you go through them with a full staff?



"I am not a day or two in football and there are no rules in this matter. It could be that with a full staff we would look bad. I think everyone who replaced those who did not play is a good enough player to represent Maccabi Tel Aviv. You can be proud of Kartzev and Ruslan who did not play long "We will take a lot from this game for the rest of the season, even if we are relegated from the Champions League."



Is it possible to turn the bowl in Austria?



"We will commit suicide to the end in Salzburg. Even if we do not qualify, we will be proud to have given everything. As one who has been in the Champions League this is the top of my career. There is nothing I want more than to be in the Champions League so we will go to Austria and do everything to do it."

"We did not want the situation to be an excuse."

Take us to what was before the game.



"This whole week has been hallucinatory. This whole half year has been hallucinatory. But a football player as soon as the game starts, forgets about everything. "Men and say we did everything to win the game. We said that from now on the situation will not be an excuse. We the seniors said it to the younger ones."



You went through a difficult time before returning to Maccabi Tel Aviv.



"Physically I feel great after two years I did not feel good. If I play not well it is not because of my physical condition. Also mentally I am hungrier today than I was at 17 when I started playing. Before I left Israel I was a player who was hardly injured and suddenly from such a high place to come "For two years you do not get out of them. I went through a nightmare that I do not wish for people. I appreciate football today more than I appreciated before the injury. I am exactly in the same shape as I was at 26. As soon as I have minutes of play I will return to my ability from the past."
