Tel Aviv coach for the city's big game: "We don't claim to be what we are not. We break our heads and try to find the solutions ”• Degani:“ Our landings can work for our benefit too ”
Klinger with Cereal, this morning in Khodorov. Will they surprise the champion?
Will Hapoel Tel Aviv be the first team to score against Maccabi Tel Aviv? We'll get the answers to that tomorrow, but the club members are confident that they can do it.
"We come as an underdog to this game but it can work in our favor and we can show what we're worth," said team captain Oral Degani this morning, adding, "We believe we can score against them and win. If we didn't believe it would have been better not to play. Winning can be a turning point for our season. "
Coach Nir Klinger added at the press conference ahead of the game: "Every day I come here I understand something and learn more, know the players more deeply, draw conclusions from every training and every game. We are an underdog, it is clear, you can also look at the table. We do not pretend To be what we are not but it is messing with the media. "
Klinger added: "We are doing everything around to bring the 11 most physically and mentally prepared. After this game board, obviously it is a super tough game, maybe the hardest game in the league for all teams but we come proudly and I said it on Sunday the word fear There is no lexicon for my team. "

Asked how his team would score against the yellows, Klinger replied: "We break our heads and try to find the solutions. I think Hapoel Tel Aviv's defensive game is good, it stabilized, so in that respect we are on the right path. Our pass game and our neat attack are less good but We are looking for players within the roster for the specific game that I feel is fire and with mental and professional readiness so they can go and try to score and try to win. "
On being his first derby as an acting coach, Klinger said: "Since none of you have been through it, I can tell you that only I know what the feelings are in these cases. I tried to count how many derby I had in front of Maccabi as a coach this week and that is dozens." In the meantime, if midfielder Stefan Spirovsky, who missed the game against Betar, will be in full training today, he may open Nir Klinger's lineup. Omar Damari may return to the roster tomorrow after recovering from an injury.
