This coming week will concentrate on him, more than any other week after the season, the close race between Maccabi Tel Aviv and Maccabi Haifa at the summit of Israeli football. On Sunday the two will meet in the playoffs of the Premier League, and on Wednesday they will fight in the semi-finals of the State Cup. Can the Yellows, after the recent fakes, still return to the championship fight? Are the Greens facing a first win on the plate after a decade?



The last coach to be crowned Maccabi Haifa champion is Elisha Levy. "I would never have imagined that she would not win the championship for ten years," Levy admits in an interview with the "Double Team" podcast. "In real time they said the team is gray and does not have enough stars, and now, in retrospect, miss. The fans got used to very high standards, and today understand that it was not obvious. Today, when I come to Haifa, I am king. The crowd loves and compliments. But I do not leverage. myself".



The veteran coach (63) is in no hurry to close the championship story, but it is clear to him which side the momentum is currently on.

"I am surprised by what is happening to Maccabi Tel Aviv. It has a very deep staff, and for some reason it has reached the last fumes. In my opinion, it is mainly a mental matter."

Levy, who won two championships with the Greens and reached the home stage of the Champions League with them, has also coached Hapoel Beer Sheva and the Israeli national team over the years, and is in the midst of the most shaky season of his career. He started it at Bnei Yehuda, continued at Hapoel Kfar Saba, and finished it at Hapoel Haifa. He talked about the circumstances that led him to resign and be fired, and is sure to continue on the red side of the Carmel next season as well.



He was involved in two of the most dramatic moments in league history. One, in the laces game in 1997, when he coached Hapoel Beit She'an, and as a result he seems to be "burned out" at Hapoel Tel Aviv. "I did my best to win that game, and I sleep at night," Levy replies; And the other, when he was on the losing side of the championship goal scored by Eran Zehavi for the Reds in 2010. In the conversation, he recalled what he went through when he heard about how his team, Maccabi Haifa, lost the title.



"The pressure was very great, but we managed to equalize against Bnei Yehuda. We reached the last half minute, the championship was ours, and then Adoram Casey came to me and whispered to me that Hapoel won. It was very cruel, people lay on the grass. The championship we took the year after was the hardest and most "Sweet. Within ten days we had to get off the boards and pick up the people. The players were done."
