Barkat referred to the last games under Aliniv Barda in her opening remarks and said: "The significant difference in the last three games is that we regained the passion. We see better energy, fire in the eyes, and that was something we were missing. I believe that when you play well you will bring results."



Does Breda enjoy training?

"I'm sure he enjoys it, he has an orderly policy on how he wants the team to look and he has a great opportunity to show it. He's a professional manager, not looking to be a coach and he moved to the position due to my request. It was important at that point not to go for a hole. "Continue in the way we believe. At the end of the season, we will see what the best option is for us."



"We strongly believe in our team, if I thought the season was over I would not make a change. We want to continue to fight. Eliniv and I are focused on this season, not messing around now next season."

Unhealthy trend.

The decision to say goodbye to Roni Levy: "He is a charming, hardworking and high-level tactician, but in the last eight cycles something has happened. The ability and results were not good, the trend was not healthy, so I felt it was the time to make a change."



"Roni Levy did not build the team, but coached a team he got. This season the team was built together with him, I believed that with the quality players we will represent football better. It happened at times, but not enough. I thought it was a completely new team with 15 players, over time And that connection will improve. "



The pressure from the crowd to make a shock: "We do everything for the fans, they are our partners. Me and CEO Guy Primor have invested hours to align the generations with them and make sure that the calls that were in the game against Maccabi Netanya will not return.

Since that game they have come back to cheer.

They did not come to me with an argument, but said they did not like the style of play, it is something I can understand and it was important to do everything so that Ronny would finish the season.



"We are a very community club, we have regular meetings with the fans. I wanted to provide a comfortable work environment for the coach, that he would deal with the professional side only and we are all around. The talks helped but in the end we sell 'show', football is an experience "In the first 16 games we had 83% success, and in the next eight games we went down to 37%, that's drastic."

There was burnout.

When Barkat was asked about a moment she regrets 15 years of ownership, the issue of parting with Barak Bachar, the coach who led the Reds to three consecutive championships after 40 years in the desert, was raised: "He is an outstanding coach, but I think there was an erosion. .



The youth department: "We were less successful in it, I admit. This year a big change was made and I hope that with the standards that came in, results will come. There are very talented players who grew up in the youth - Tomer Yosefi, Or Dadia, Itamar Shabiru."



In conclusion, Barkat referred to her departure in 2020 and the arrival of the trustee: "We were in the Corona period, all the owners cut back because there was no choice. I was the first to say that we should prepare, that we experience something that was not before. I said I bring a lot of money Some because there was no choice. Unfortunately it did not go as I wanted, it was very difficult for me, but in the bottom line everyone cut in all groups, do not know when there was such a big crisis. When I left there was a lot of money left in the coffers For everything. "
