Hapoel Tel Aviv is in turmoil after the violent incident in the final minutes of the 1: 1 against Maccabi Petah Tikva tonight (Saturday) in the Moshava. In extra time, a fan burst onto the grass, hit the team player Raz Twisser hard and ran towards Eddie Gottlieb. The fan was preparing to hit the brake, but Gottlieb overtook him, gave him a blow and lowered him to the ground.



Referee Idan Leiba acted in accordance with the constitution and handed Gottlieb a red card, which angered the players and staff of Hapoel Tel Aviv. The brakeman, who looked shocked, told team members: "I saw he was coming to hit me and I had to defend myself."



Ben Bitton was very upset and said: "I did not see anything like that. A fan entered the field, hit Twisser, Eddie just defended himself. He felt threatened, it did not make sense for a player to be threatened on the grass and not be able to defend himself. Instead of football, everyone deals with it. "It can not be, we must protect the players. It is absurd that the constitution requires expulsion. No matter how delusional a player is, he must not be able to defend himself. It must change. No matter who is responsible, it simply must change."
