Summary of the Conference League qualifiers: Zira - Maccabi Tel Aviv 3:0 (Sport1)
Maccabi Tel Aviv officially announced last night (Monday) the return of Dor Peretz to the yellow uniforms and thus the team completed the signing of another senior legionnaire, who joins Nir Biton and Eran Zahavi who arrived earlier.
Peretz's re-debut training is expected to be this afternoon and Maccabi has already provided the necessary details, for his registration in the team's squad in UEFA for the upcoming pair of games against the French Nice. Although it is still unclear if Peretz will be included in the squad already in the home game in two days.
Peretz already made the final decision a few weeks ago that he wants to return home to Israel.
As far as Peretz is concerned, the only house that comes into consideration for him is of course the house in Kiryat Shalom, where the high contract for three seasons at about 550 thousand euros per season, in addition to a hefty signing bonus and the fact that he had no other attractive offers overseas, made it easy for the 27-year-old midfielder to return Accepting the yellows' offer after only one season, an unsuccessful season to say the least, in the Italian Venezia uniform, which was relegated at the end of last season to the second division.
Returns after only one season.

Peretz had, among others, offers from Russia, Hungary and the Championship in England, but none of the offers, including that of Ben Mansford and Blackpool, were attractive enough for the midfielder.
Before making the final decision to return to Israel, Peretz consulted with quite a few people, including of course his immediate family and close friends who helped him make the final decision to return.
The fact that he is returning to the club of his youth, to a place that really wanted him back, to a coach who sees him as a central player in the resurgent Maccabi, made the decision even easier for Peretz.
The fact that Eran Zahavi is back in the yellow uniform, and around him is building a strong team that is going to compete again for all the titles in Israel, entered the set of considerations.
Peretz hasn't trained with a team since he left Venice, but he used the break to work closely with Eran Shado, the Israeli national team's fitness coach.
In the last month and a half, the two held over 50 personal training sessions and due to the fact that Peretz is on the Israel national team squad, all training sessions were conducted with GPS measurements and everything was recorded and recorded, both for the national team team and for the Maccabi personnel who received the data.
"According to the data, according to the quality of the training, the training rhythms and everything we have been working on for the past month and a half, Dor is in excellent physiological shape," said Shado.
"We worked on a number of aspects beyond the physiological side, work with the ball, work in front of the goal and such and such games. We did together the preparation for the season and of course what he lacks is playing minutes because he actually did not play, unlike the teams that do a training camp and such and such training games."

Mitch Goldhar's plans to rebuild his team began very early last season.
Two years ago, Goldhar saw Maccabi Haifa win its first championship after a dry decade and last year it was already clear that the Yellows were on their way to another season without a plate, he already understood that it was time to recalculate the course, as far as building the staff and the professional team is concerned.
After the acquisitions of Djorja Jovanovic in January and Joris van Overeem around March, it continued with the courting of Vladan Ivic and Eran Zahavi and continued with the signing of Nir Beaton who ended a nine-year spell in the Scottish League.
Goldhar, along with his right-hand man Jack Angalidis and the professional manager Barak Itzhaki, last night marked another big V in their purchase list with the addition of Dor Peretz, while the next name on the list is Eli Desa, who has already received an offer for a long-term contract for four seasons at a salary approaching 700 One thousand euros per season.
What all the Israeli players who have arrived so far have in common is that they all arrived as free agents, which allowed the Yellows to offer very high salaries when all of them, without exception, were also signed to long-term contracts.
In addition to this, Maccabi Tel Aviv is working overtime to land a foreign brakeman in Israel, although so far, the efforts have not borne fruit despite the green light given by Canada, and the high sums of money estimated at around one and a half million euros allocated for the purpose.
Peretz comes to a link very loaded with players and the professional team will soon have to make decisions, also regarding the releases of players.
Currently, the professional team is waiting for the pair of games against Nice and the results of the double encounter will of course have consequences for the decision-making regarding such and such players.
If Ivić's team surprises the French and eventually reaches the group stage in the Conference League, Maccabi Tel Aviv will need a long roster, which will cope with the expected load of games in the coming season.
In the event that Maccabi is relegated and remains only with the Israeli league, this will also require a recalculation of the number of players in the squad.
