"Then I suggested to Eran to imitate Motla" - Walla! sport


Yigal Tsabari, the team's physiotherapist, was the one who suggested that Zahavi celebrate breaking the record of conquests with the moving gesture. The striker's brother: "He will stay on the team until he has exhausted all possibilities"

Many wondered how Eran Zehavi decided to celebrate the breaking of Motla Spiegler's record on Tuesday at Turner by imitating the goal scorer's walk in Mexico in 1970 with his hand raised.

Spiegler once said that when he sat with his family at his home in Netanya before leaving for Mexico more than 51 years ago for the World Cup, he stood in the living room of the house, walked nonchalantly with his hand raised and promised it would be the goal's private celebration when he scored.

The person who suggested to Eran Zehavi to repeat exactly the same movement is the team physiotherapist Yigal Tsabari.

"As always I treated Eran the night before the game and while working, we talked about how he should celebrate breaking the record if that happens in the game. Then I suggested he mimic Motella's walk with his hand up. Eran liked the idea and was glad to see he did it. On the field. "

Sabri has been working with Zehavi on the team for years. "Eran is something special. You have to see his work, his professionalism, the downfall to every little detail in preparation before a game and release after a game. These are things that allow him to be in the top. He is an example and role model for everyone."

Zehavi did not share with his friends what he was going to do if he scored his 33rd goal. 40 friends and family arrived hours before the game at his mother's house in western Rishon Lezion where they boarded a specially rented bus to take everyone to Turner for the big moment of the national team star. Everyone wanted to be in the stadium when that happened. "I did not know what Eran was planning after the goal and the truth is that until now I do not know who recommended him to make the moving tribute to Motella Spiegler," Eran's brother Avi Zehavi said yesterday.

Avi Zehavi added: "Eran's goal remains to help the team advance to a big tournament. Conquering goals and breaking Spiegler's record were never a goal. Do not forget that only three years ago Eran had only 6 goals. Who could have imagined that he would score 27 goals in "29 games? Until their hair does not exhaust the possibility of coming with the team to a big tournament, he will not leave it."

Determined to exhaust all options in the team.

This morning, Eran Zehavi returned to the Netherlands with his wife Shai and his three children.

On the publication of his contract worth 6 million euros for two years, a contract that is causing a bit of a stir this morning in the Netherlands, the striker's entourage said that this is another reduced amount as Zahavi has many individual and group bonuses that were not included in the published amount.
