Maccabi Tel Aviv held a MASA on Sunday, announcing the extension of coach Janis Safropoulos' contract for another two years. In the last few weeks, the coach's brother, who also serves as our agent, arrived in Israel.

Sparopoulos came to Maccabi in November 2018 following the dismissal of the Croatian Nabana Safahia and managed to win the championship. This summer, the Greek has made changes to the roster of players according to his eyes and so far he seems to be able to implement his professional programs and implement them.

Maccabi ranks fourth in the Euroleague with a 4: 9 balance after 13 games, when it has yet to lose a home game at the Moorea Menorah. Despite the disappointment of the club after being ousted in the quarterfinals of the Hapoel Jerusalem, the yellow club's captains greatly appreciate the work of the 52-year-old coach and so they decided to extend the contract.
